How to join:
Book your place on the 6-week introductory course on Eventbrite.

To book the first term, please email me on hollybell@amandacadabra.com, just giving me your name and saying you'd like to reserve your place. I'll send you an email reminder near the time when the course starts. If you have any questions, doubts or concerns, please let me know and I'll do my best to answer or reassure you.

You've heard me talk about it, you've read it in the books if you're an Amanda Cadabra series fan, and now here's your chance to get a taste of speaking this legendary Celtic language.

In a class of not more than 16 eager learners, my co-teacher Linda and I will be leading you through the first steps into Kernewek - Cornish.

Supported by the Cornish language learning guide Bora Brav, we'll be using games, group activities and practice with other students in Zoom breakout rooms.

Our classes are in association with An Kylgh Kernewek (The Cornish Language Circle), which has been running Cornish language classes since 2007.

All of their tutors use the Standard Written Form (SWF) of the language, the official form as taught in schools and used in public life. You can find out more about them on info@learncornishdreckly.org.uk/

Four years ago, I was where you are now. It was a very short time before I was hooked. And I wouldn't have missed the journey since then for the world. I have explored the past and present of a rich Celtic language and culture, and made friends I never expected to have in places I have yet to visit.

Amanda Cadabra brought me here. I hope you'll be one of the 15 who'll join me on the first part of your Cornish language journey and the next part of mine.
