Product description

This audio recording, which accompanies the Luath Scots Language Learner book, conveys the authentic pronunciation, especially important to readers from outside Scotland. It is suitable as an introductory course or for those interested in reacquainting themselves with the language of childhood and grandparents. There are dictionaries and grammar books but this is the first-ever language course. The book assumes no prior knowledge on the reader's part. Starting from the most basic vocabulary and constructions, the reader is guided step-by-step through Scots vocabulary and the subtleties of grammar and idiom that distinguish Scots from English.

Author information

L COLIN WILSON was born in 1958 in Aberdeen, of parents and grandparents who themselves were from the Aberdeen area. Having spent his early childhood there, and then some two years in Cumbernauld, he was raised in Peterculter on Lower Deeside. He was educated at the local primary school and later at Cults Academy, after which he graduated from RGIT in Electronic Engineering. As well as North East Scotland, he has also lived and worked in London and Glasgow. By profession he is a computer software developer. Nowadays Colin lives in Aberdeen's Midstocket area, with his wife Fiona - a native of Cairnbulg - and her golden retrievers Honey and Cara. When not working at his job, or promoting Scots, his main interests are other languages, travel, and his music collection.
