Straight to the Point

I loved that this book was straight to the point. I was mildly disappointed that it wasn't longer. I would listen to this book again due to the narrator's enthusiasm and pronunciation. Some of the phrases and words are very familiar to me, so it was a pleasure to listen to.

It was a Blast!

It was alot of fun and enjoyable learning some of the many colourful words and phrases that are used every day in Scotland. I love the narrators accent I just wished he spoke a little slower. But I just turned the speed right down.
So now when I visit Scotland I will understand some of what is being said.

Quite entertaining way to learn Scottish

As a English Second Language learner, Scottish words sounds out of the world to me! Not gonna lie, some of the words are quite amusing. The whole time listening to this audio, I tried to guess what some of the words mean before hearing the definition. I think I still have quite to learn about Scottish.

NOW THAT WAS AMUSING!

Now that was amusing! This is a short and entertaining book for all those that have a keen interest in learning about what exactly Scottish people mean when they say what they are saying. I had a Scottish co-worker and boy this book reminded me of him. I hope Clarie Allan releases another edition and adds more words/phrases/pronunciations to this book as it was quite fun to listen to this. A definite recommendation.

Must Listen for Outlander Fans!

I'm in season 2 of The Outlander so I'm into all things Scottish right now and this short and sweet Scottish words and phases audio was just what I needed immerse myself into culture of the highlands. Immensely enjoyable, I'd highly recommend if you want to learn some Scottish words. I was surprised at how many slang phrases we use in English that are Scottish!

Very interesting audiobook

I have to agree with author that Scottish language is a totally different ball game compared to English. I was surprised that the same words have different meanings in Scottish and in English. Also I heard a lot of new words I haven't never heard before. Very interesting book, especially if you are going to visiting this beautiful country.

Heading up to Scotland soon so I thought I'd better learn some phrases. This was much better than expected. Short and sweet. No fluff.. just easy to follow and exactly what you pay for. What's not to like? :)

Awesome!

This was very fun and amusing to get to know some of the slang in Scottish. If I ever visit over there or become acquainted with someone from there I will defiantly try to embarrass myself with by trying to converse with their native slang.

Love this book!

This is a great book! I have always wanted to know what they are saying, but it is so hard to understand. Having this book is like offering you a sneak peek into how to understand. Also, this is a fun read! So many funny and interesting phrases you should know also!

Entertaining

I visited Scotland many times, and I loved it each time. I’m glad that I found this book, to remind of the good time I had, and to understand the local dialect next time when I go there.

Neeps and Tatties Forever More!

Well my father is Scottish and even to this day, i can become flummoxed by some the words and phrases he uses. This highly engaging, but very concise audiobook has certainly shed some light on the matter. The audiobook made me smile and the narration was just right.

The trainspotting translation guide

Excellent! Straight into it with no rambling, short and sweet but was a cheery jaunt through the most common Scottish vernacular, much fun and learnt a few words I'd not heard before.

Loved it!

I loved the way this book is narrated, clear and no-nonsense (which was funny given some of the words!). It says the words and then short understandable details of what the words mean and in context. I can’t wait to give this to my friends and family and I might order a few for their Christmas stockings! I really enjoyed it all and some of the words were fantastic and hilarious (apologies to any Scottish friends!)

Good Scottish Words Data base

The audible " 100+ Scottish Words and Phrases" is very useful to me as live in Scotland but was not originally born in Scotland. This audible has helped me to be more knowledgeable in Scottish words often used among peers. Highly recommended.

Excellent book!

We are planning to travel upto Scotland next summer and wanted to learn the lingo!
This book has some words that I can understand from the way they are said and with some words I was way off the mark!

Some words made me smile, for example, I did not know Scottish people called going shopping for food..as going to supermarket to get messages!!

Lovely book with great narration. This book can help you carry a conversation with a Scottish person...although I might have to listen to it few more times!

Hilarious and refreshing

I had a really good laugh at some of these and even sometimes thought "You can't say that out loud"! I can't wait for the author to follow up with a Doric version.
