Revival of the Cornish Language

Want to demonstrate your Cornishness to others? Proper Job!

Henry Jenner, pivotal Cornish revivalist, said, "Why should Cornishmen learn Cornish? ... Because they are Cornishmen."

Try BBC Cornwall’s easy course of simple Cornish phrases. There are twelve easy to follow lessons which take you through everyday situations.

Have a go at all twelve and you'll be able to chat to other Cornish speakers - whichever country they live in!
