Cornish Week is back!
Would you like to try some Cornish? Go to an event where Cornish is being
used? Find out more about the language? Design a poster or a meme, make
a film or take a photo?
Here is your chance! Speak Cornish Week, which this year runs from the
23rd June to 2nd July is a chance to highlight all things Cornish. The
programme of events for this year includes bus trips, cream teas, train
rides, outdoor conversation events, children’s activities and more
-and there is still time to register an event if you would like to organise
The theme for this year is Prag Na? Why not? We’d like to know what
you would like to do – tell us in Cornish in a film, on a poster,
in a meme, in a photo – there are lots of possibilities! Prag na
mordardha (Why not go surfing?) Prag na restri kevewi? (Why not have a
party?) Proag na dybri dehen Kernewek? (Why not eat Cornish cream?) Prag
na kewsel Kernewek? (Why not speak Cornish?) You will find suggestions
on the Speak Cornish Week facebook page or on Twitter.
Then post your suggestions on social media with the hashtag #speakcornish17
and share away! If you need more translations the Cornish Language Office
will be glad to help! firstname.lastname@example.org
Let’s make this year’s Speak Cornish bigger and better than
ever – Prag na?
Find us on Facebook too!
