Retaining Scots words in our everyday lives
School children from Aberdeenshire talk about their favourite Scots words. Dundee poet Mark Thomson performs a poem which is stuffed with Scots words. Mark goes on to comment on how important it is to the Nation to preserve and continue to use the Scots tongue. Robert Burns is identified as a vital component in this quest to promote our Scots language.
Set up a Scots reading competition. Encourage students to write and perform their own dramatic monologue in Scots. Collect a library of works in Scots to allow students to read them and choose their own favourites.
