An Kylgh Kernewek (The Cornish Language Circle) has been running Cornish language classes since 2007. Our classes are normally held in Penryn and Redruth

We have teachers  for every level, from absolute beginners right through to advanced. We prepare students for the WJEC assessments and the exams of Kesva an Taves Kernewek (The Cornish Language Board) if they wish, though these are certainly not obligatory. All our tutors teach using the Standard Written Form (SWF) of the language, the official form as taught in schools and used in public life. Do contact us if you are interested in these or other classes.

Not sure whether you should learn a new language? Have a look at this article about research done by the University of Edinburgh. Search the web for lots of other examples.
