    Your reading comprehension is in question.

    Last time I checked, they speak and write English in Scotland.

    True, BUT he might be native to a region that doesnt speak english as a primary language.

    He could be part of the minority that speaks scotish gaelic as his native tongue with just a very basic working knowledge of scottish english.

    Way back in the 10th grade, The School I attended did a reading comprehension test on all tenth grade students. I tested as having just short of a 12th grade level.
    At the time the average reading comprehension level for a H.S. Graduate was an 8th grade level. Thanks for your concern.


    Highlands = Scottish Gaelic

    "The Goidelic language currently spoken in Scotland is Scottish Gaelic. It is widely spoken in the Outer Hebrides, and also in parts of the Inner Hebrides and Scottish Highlands, and by some people in other areas of Scotland. It was formerly spoken over a far wider area than today, even in the recent past, as evidenced by placenames. Galwegian Gaelic is the extinct dialect of Scottish Gaelic formerly spoken in southwest Scotland. It was spoken by the independent kings of Galloway in their time, and by the people of Galloway and Carrick until the early modern period. It was also once spoken in Annandale and Strathnith."
