Clì Gàidhlig ([ˈkʰliː ˈkaːlɪkʲ]), founded in 1984 as Comann an Luchd-Ionnsachaidh[1] ([ˈkʰomən̪ˠ ə lˠ̪uxˈkʲũːn̪ˠs̪əxɪ], 'the Learners' Society'), is an organisation based in Inverness which seeks to support learners of the Scottish Gaelic language and has campaigned actively to promote the language.

Clì organises classes ranging from "coffee mornings" and one-day conversation courses to Ùlpan and grammar courses throughout Scotland.[2] It also produces materials for learners, including the quarterly magazine Cothrom (the name means "a chance" in Gaelic).

Clì was also mentioned in news as lobbying to make the BBC Alba TV channel available on Freeview.[3] One of its members is Alasdair Allan, MSP, currently the Scottish Government's Minister for Learning, Science and Scotland's Languages.[4]
