About Cornish

Cornish, Kernewek, is a living language and, as well as the KDL lessons, we encourage students to use the many resources available for students to improve their Cornish. Here are some ideas:

Go to the annual Cornish Language Weekend in Newquay. This is a great opportunity to improve your Cornish and all students should try to come if they can. It is organised by Kowethas an Yeth.

Listen to An Nowodhow, a 5 minute news bulletin from Radio Cornwall every week. The scripts are here.

Listen to Radyo an Gernewegva, a weekly hour-long radio program, with extra podcasts for learners.

Watch Pellwolok an Gernewegva, a monthly video in Kernewek.

Go to a Yeth an Werin, if you can visit one of these friendly groups of people speaking Cornish. Look out for them on the Kalendar Kernewek.

Read An Gannas, the monthly magazine for members of Kowethas an Yeth. Back numbers are also on-line.

Read An Kesskrifer, the KDL newsletter, sent to all students, with articles for all levels.

Read Cornish language books, available from Kowethas an Yeth, Amazon and other places.

Use e.GERVA, a Cornish-English dictionary for Windows, with more than 30,000 words (FSS) in over 6,000 records. You can Search, Add, Edit, Delete, Print, Copy and Browse. It is very quick to use.

Use Gerlyver Kernewek, the on-line dictionary in FSS.
