MAGA is Launched

The Cornish website MAGA has launched, providing Cornish and current news, information about up and coming projects and events, a chance to learn the language, on-line resources, games and interactive material, music clips and much, much more.

MAGA, the Cornish language development project was designed to act as a portal for the native language and is run by the Cornish Language Partnership.

The website is easy to navigate and has a clean design, including a homepage showing one of the eight alternating photos and Cornish quotes.

The portal already has a whole host of information and is to be continually updated and added to as new resources become available and will for example, soon be providing tasters for Cornish language films.

If you don’t yet know any Cornish, there are topical phrases on the site which you can hear as well as read. The seasonal tips section gives all the essential phrases you may need for a day out in Cornwall during the summer, from 'Shall we have a barbecue tonight?' to Does my bum look big in this bikini?!'

You can also submit items for translation or join the mailing list to obtain the monthly newsletter.

The site links to other Cornish Language sites and sites run by members of the Partnership. Information relating to the Partnership and its work and meetings can be accessed along with links to information about other small languages in Europe.

So, If you want to know what’s going on with developing the Cornish Language, where you can learn and what events are happening then this is for you!
