Maga Kernow –  Skol-Net Kernow

Nearly everything you need to learn Cornish and learn about Cornish

Sample of the web page

To meet the growing demand for learning the Cornish language MAGA, the Cornish Language Partnership, and Truro and Penwith College have joined forces to provide a free online resource site aimed at meeting the needs of both students and teachers.

MAGA Education Officer Mike Tresidder said: “The idea is to provide an online place where students can find a variety of learning resources and teachers can make their material available to students. Anyone interested in Cornish can take their first steps towards learning here, interact with other learners or just have a look at what interests them”.

Based on Truro and Penwith College’s ‘Moodle’ programme, the resource is very easy to use and, unlike some sites, can be easily updated by teachers and students. One beginner in Cornish commented: “It’s great, I can listen to audio, watch films or get stuck into reading and writing Cornish as and when I want”.

Andy Lancaster, Truro and Penwith College’s Higher Education Development Leader, commented: “We are very happy to be supporting this educational initiative. The college works in many areas of language tuition and teacher training, so this project sits comfortably within our work.  It is very exciting to be involved in this blend between modern technology and the promotion of Cornish culture.”

The site will be open to the general public from 6th of July.
