Jan, 

This needs to be borne in mind if one is going in for the exams.   What
would be the best advice on that?

MAGA (mainly Pol Hodge) has been more than somewhat dismissive of Dan's
audio course, saying that they already have "Say Something in Cornish" which
is being built on the template of "Say Something in Welsh". However, whereas
Dan's course sounds lovely, SSiC sounds awful (to my ears, anyway).
Obviously they don't like competition

I myself find that Dan's audio course has helped my pronunciation a lot. You
can download lessons 1-15 from http://www.kernewegva.com/deskikernowek.html

All the best,

I would very much welcome details of how to obtain Dan's Desky Kernowek
audio courses.

 

Pronunciation has been my downfall.   For this reason I failed the oral at
Grade Four a few years ago and have postponed the attempt to rectify it ever
since.    When I was first teaching myself Gaelic from books in the days
before audio courses of any kind I found I virtually had to relearn my
painfully and erroneously acquired Gaelic once again from scratch.    I have
no desire to repeat the process with Cornish.  Hence my reluctance to
continue further.

One of the huge problems of learning Cornish so far has been the lack of
accessibility to exemplar speakers (whoever they may be) and deficiencies in
the orthographies resulting in poor pronunciation.


I've been enjoying Dan's Desky Kernowek audio courses - though I'm not as
aware of good and bad practice!
