If you're thinking of learning Cornish and can't get to a class (and even if you can!) TeachMe! Cornish should be high on your list of potential purchases. It is very easy to use, the graphics are attractive and helpful, the sound is very clear and the lessons themselves are excellent. The PC material, audio CD and reading book are together a great integrated package. As a teacher of the language, I can recommend it.

Rolls Royce of a product
My hobby is looking at languages and semantics. I must have about 30+ various language courses from Linguaphone to Teach Yourself and the Colloquial series.
In 25 years I have never come across such a wonderful language learning tools as the TeachMe series. The programme is so simple to use and allows you to be in control. The addition of the CD with the course materials was a brilliant move. I have a 2 hour drive into work each day and it is an ideal time to listen to languages!
Whoever, came up with the format is a winner. I hope that it will expand to include other languages inthe future. My family have groaned and moaned as I have told them next birthdays etc. will be TeachMe! CD Roms!
Thanks for such a wonderful product!

Cornish is a living language, and the pronunciation of the course sounds very close to that of the BBC speakers. (It was a bit discouraging to read in the course that the pronunciation of Cornish depends upon which period you are interested in, but we can easily forgive this.)
It's a very good course, that really works. The only peculiar thing is that browse mode also awards points (I don't think it should)
The editor should be commended for his commitment to minority languages.

Learning the good old way
For me, the best part of the software is learning how to pronounce the language. Being able to have the software evaluate my pronunciation is invaluable to my learning process. I also like the interface a lot. It's friendly and doesn't scare me away when I sit down to learn more words.
