History

Cornish, Welsh and Breton are known as the Brythonic languages because they all share the same language ancestor, the ancient Brythonic language. This language was spoken in Britain during the time of the Celts, but was pushed westwards by the invading Anglo-Saxons. Eventually, the speakers of Brythonic were pushed so far westward that they were split into two groups, one into Wales and the other into the Westcountry, and their language eventually also split into what became Welsh and Cornish. Later, as Cornish was pushed further and further south west, some of the Celts crossed the Channel to what is now Brittany, and took their language with them. That language later developed into Breton.

The Brythonic languages are closely related to the other branch of Celtic languages still found today, the Goidelic languages of Irish Gaelic (Gaeilge), Manx Gaelic (Gaelg) and Scots Gaelic (Gàidhlig).

Join us

To show your interest in the Cornish, Welsh or Breton languages, sign up at the streams found below. This is to see the numbers of people learning, in which we, the instructors, can work out our priorities. For example, if you learn Welsh, but don’t sign up at the stream, and we decide there are not enough people worth carrying on the lessons, you will miss out. So it's to help us prioritise. So, if you’re learning, sign up at the stream.

Learning techniques

I have made a page called Learning Techniques which contains a technique for learning the languages in the courses in this division. Anyone, feel free to add your own suggestions to the page. Its all for the benefit of the students.
