Muriel of Skye

Gaelic Language Instruction

Fàilte! Welcome!

Welcome to the homepage of the Tucson Gaelic Institute and Muriel of Skye, a.k.a. Muriel Fisher. Muriel has been teaching gaelic in Tucson and around the world for over 20 years. During that time, over 1000 students have come to appreciate and love her native language. Please join us!

Muriel’s years of experience teaching Gaelic have helped her develop her own sets of Gaelic educational materials. Designed to be self contained, each level builds on the previous one. Included in the packets are a textbook, workbook and CD’s. It’s like being in her class!

My name is Muriel - Muir Gheal - which means “white sea” in the Gaelic. I’m a crofters daughter from the Isle of Skye. I didn’t learn English until I was 6 years old when I went to school. My father came from the Isle of Harris in the outer Hebrides and my mother was from the Isle of Skye. So the Gaelic you learn from me is authentic Gaelic still spoken in the islands to this day.
