Our on-line Summer School is running every Thursday at 20:00 until 29 August. This is where we take a break from coursebook based learning. We're improving our Cornish by reading aloud our Book of the Summer, which is John Buchan's An Nawnjek Stap warn Ugans, available on the Literature page of this website. In particular, we're exploring the skills needed to make successful Cornish audio books. The Summer School is still open for new joiners. Contact Us if you would like to enrol. Meetings by Zoom. No charge.
