Welcome to Cainnt mo Mhàthar (My Mother's Language) - a website showcasing video and audio recordings of Gaelic speakers from Nova Scotia. Whether you're a fluent speaker, or just starting to learn Gaelic, this site gives you the chance to hear the everyday, idiomatic Gaelic spoken here whenever you want. What's more, you'll be learning about Gaelic culture in Nova Scotia from those who know it best - men and women immersed in the language and traditions of their communities. For well over two-hundred years, Gaelic has been spoken in Nova Scotia. Click on the pictures to the left to meet some of our modern day tradition-bearers helping to pass the language on.
