Manx lessons in Ramsey start tomorrow

Mon, 23 Sep 2019

Volunteers in Ramsey will launch beginner Manx lessons from tomorrow.
Regular adult lessons are held in the North by volunteers  at Thie ny Gaelgey (The Old School), St Judes, with some support from Culture Vannin.
Manx is taught in the Mooinjer Veggey nurseries, the Manx language school (Bunscoill Ghailckagh at St Johns), primary and secondary schools leading to a GCSE or A level equivalent qualification.
Volunteer Paul Salmon said: 'These days we teach beginners to converse in everyday Manx and we only look at old-fashioned grammar with those who want it. Classes tend to be quite light-hearted. But people do need a little bit of dedication to really get stuck in. People surprise themselves. I’ve had learners that got nowhere at school but have learned loads of Manx and now use it regularly with their friends and families.'
Paul will be holding the event from 7:30pm tomorrow at The Mitre Hotel - he can be contacted on 451261 or email
