Our Classes

An Kylgh Kernewek holds classes in Kernewek - the Cornish language - in Falmouth/Penryn, Rosewarne Downs. Camborne and Redruth. Please contact us if you live in a different area and would like tuition at any level. Our volunteer tutors are flexible. Classes usually begin in September, but we're happy to discuss different schedules to suit individual students.

You can also find a list of other Cornish classes (and other useful materials) on Learn Cornish Now - http://www.learncornishnow.com/find-a-class.html. The page allows you to download a PDF file of classes or search a map for local classes. The Kylgh is currently (2014-15) running two beginners' classes, one in the Falmouth/Penryn area and one in Redruth.

Some of our students take Cornish exams with the Cornish Language Board (http://www.kesva.org) but several do not. Tuition is always structured with the needs of students in mind. Written materials are in Standard Written Form (SWF), the orthography designed to be used in formal education and public life - schools, road signs, public documents etc.
