An Kylgh Kernewek (The Cornish Language Circle) has been running Cornish language classes since 2007. Our classes are normally held in Redruth but will be run via Zoom until the Covid-19 situation improves.

We have teachers for students, from absolute beginners through to advanced. We prepare students for 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.

2021-2 sees a continuation of the successful Zoom seminar series based on the Kesva fourth grade syllabus initiated by Kensa Broadhurst. Seminars last approximately an hour. A core set of seminars will be held monthly on Saturday mornings from September 2021 to April 2022 at 10.30 with extra seminars on a weekday evening from time to time. Zoom links will be sent to those who register with us in advance.
