Thanks for this advice, Jan.

 

A very prompt response.   If one wants to pass Grade Four, I wonder what the
best course would be?

Ken, until there are examiners who are competent to judge the fluency of
someone speaking with a Late Cornish "accent", I wouldn't bank on passing
Grade Four speaking no matter how good you get!

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

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!
