Our Wullie helps you learn the Scots Language

Oor Wullie is helping children learn Scots through an online initiative developed by the National Library of Scotland.

The Oor Wullie's guide tae Scots language website aims to introduce six to 11-year-olds to the richness of the Scots tongue.

The site features activities such as quizzes, word searches, flash cards and the opportunity for children to design their own comic.

Other features include a glossary of words such as "fantoosh", "bampot" and "muckle" as well as poems and songs and an audio map which allows children to submit a recording of their own use of Scots to help build up a picture of dialects across Scotland (Who will be the first from Muirkirk to submit a recording?)

In the Glossary are some wirds tae help ye get stertit lairnin Scots. Ye can hear whit the wird soons like first in Scots an than in English. Ye can read whit the wird means an how it can be yaised in a sentence anaw.


Glaisnock House, Cumnock

A major investment will see Glaisnock House in Cumnock transformed into a language and cultural centre for Chinese students and entrepreneurs. (15 October 2014).

As well as the site offering opportunities for Chinese students and business people to learn English and become immersed in European culture, Glaisnock House will also offer opportunities for UK students and business people to learn Chinese.

The plans will bring Glaisnock House which has been vacant for several years back into use and it is believed that the first phase of the project will see Chinese music students arrive next summer.
