A new app is aiming to help Scots learn 150 different languages from across the world, with the help of a Scottish voice.
Bluebird Languages, based in Wyoming, has teamed up with Highland broadcaster Colin Stone for the interactive audio lessons, which can be narrated in both Gaelic and English.
Scots can learn any of the 150 languages in their own dialect, something which creator Robert Savage saw as a gap in the market.
He added: “Most language apps are Anglocentric, they focus on teaching English speakers new languages.
“It took us ten years to develop something radically different. Something truly global.”
Colin, a former senior reporter with Radio Clyde and presenter on STV, moved into the world of voiceovers, audiobooks and working on audio projects in his mother’s native language of Gaelic.
He said: “It was the ideal fit for me: I was able to record thousands of phrases to be used for this massive, global app in my everyday voice – as well as be the male voice for those learning Gaelic.
“I’ve loved being involved, and people absolutely need to give it a shot. Let me teach you Albanian!”
The app is designed to be suitable for all ages and is available on a seven-day free trial.
It is then priced at £2.49 per month (or £24.99 per year) for unlimited access to one language, or £7.49 per month (£74.99 per year) for unlimited access to all 150 languages.
