A pleasant and effective course

Learning a language, means listening, reading, and then using what you’ve seen and heard. This is exactly how TeachMe! works.

The course is structured so that without even realizing it, after repeating the expressions, you end up remembering without any problem.

Reading the stories and listening to them, you see the grammar points in context, which really helps comprehension.

For Breton speakers, learning Cornish is something fundamental. It is (like Welsh as well) a language from the same family, with a lot of similarities but also with peculiarities due to a separate evolution of the language.

Knowing Cornish and Welsh is beneficial because it allows you to compare these three related languages. This has also widened my knowledge of Breton.

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.

Absolutely Brilliant

The Audio Book in Cornish is a must have for a beginner like my self who wants to learn a Brittonic Celtic
language, which from what I am told is making a come back in the areas close to where I have family. This
product is very easy to follow along with. The audio has a very clear and understandable voice, making the
learning process a lot more enjoyable when repeating what is said. Once I master this, I will without a
doubt be buying all the products Linguashop has to offer with regards to the Kernewek language.

One final note, customer support is OUTSTANDING!
