Welcome to my language school. Here I have created a place for the exploration and enjoyment of the Cornish language, Cornish dialect and Cornish literature as dynamic cultural issues.
I have designed a range of both structured and semi-structured experiences which offer opportunities to learn, and to learn about, the Cornish language and to explore Cornish literature.
The literature courses include an historical overview and an in depth exploration of the work of writers such as Daphne du Maurier, Charles Causley and Alan Kent. My courses are available throughout the year on a residential or non-residential basis.
Please see below for course options on language, literature and dialect at Learn Cornish in Cornwall:
