a job and an apartment

done with education as IT-supporter on the 23rd of june, so from the 1st of july I´m looking for a place to work.

Do you want to work in the north of England, or Scotland? - these are 2 very different places, and you'd probably get shot in both of them for getting them mixed up :p

Also if you want to learn spoken, everyday Gaelic then you're probably looking at living in one of the more remote areas like the Outer Hebrides as its not really spoken anywhere else.

And I don't kow how much call there is for IT people out there... :(

These might help :)

good call giving yourself a week of R&R :)
actually that would be a week of moving stuff to the UK, I´m living in denmark :)

Naetha the gaelic is a second priority, primary is getting to UK and using my english :) (the closer to edinburgh the better :p)

If you want to learn Gaelic, you'd probably be better off going to Ireland, as there are more speakers there.

Contact me mate on the pm set up on this board. I run a finance company in Edinburgh and know many ppl that may be interested in looking at an IT professional. Can't help on the Gaelic side of things...its not a widely spoken language up here and is in danger of dying out except in some remote places. Housing is easy...fairly cheap and in most cases pretty decent.

ps. My job lets me play DAoC during the day...

Please, don't send him here :p

To be honest, English is the everyday language out here. The only people that use Gaelic as a primary language are the 70+ year old ladies who refuse to change.

If you want to learn gaelic, you need to go to the western side of Ireland... still places there where it's first language, but mostly farming communities, so getting an IT job there is pretty hard. (or not possible).

I'd also reccomend you try some of the online websites for finding a job - that's how my parrents ending up moving from Denmark to England :)

Heh, the scotts were Irish celts who went to blighty many moons ago, and were then pushed north by the saxons.

Welsh is completely different to both irish and Scottish Gaelic - although it has the same roots, its as different as Danish and English :) Its also a lot more actively spoken (well, in Wales anyway ;))

Was an interesting article in new Scientist ages ago about dying languages - 10 times as many people speak Navajo than Welsh, but Welsh is an active language - it is the medium in 90% of the primary schools in North and Mid Wales (dunno about S Wales - its all smelly down there :eek: ) and in about 50% of secondary schools. Although Navajo is spoken by many more people it is predominantly by people who are 50+ and is expected to be completely dead within 50 years.

There you go - interesting scientific trivia for you :)

Its just a shame that a bad welsh accent sounds like the speaker is clearing their throat...

On the other hand, a softly spoken welsh accent can sound damned sexeh
