Cornish history and language at Cafe Polyglot
4:00pm Saturday 2nd February 2013 in News
MEMBERS of a language club in Falmouth were given the chance to learn more about Cornwall’s history and language at its latest meeting.
Cafe Polyglot Falmouth brings people of different nationalities together in a relaxed, social atmosphere and gives locals the chance to practice their foreign languages. One of its aims is to give people from overseas who have decided to live, work or study in Cornwall, the chance to learn something of the county’s history and culture.
With this in mind, Jan Webb, a long-standing member of Cafe Polyglot, organised a Cornish evening and invited Mike Tresidder and Pol Hodge along to give a presentation on the history of the Cornish language. The two men are education officers with MAGA (the Cornish Language Partnership).
Cafe Polyglot Falmouth meets every Thursday from 7.30pm at Falmouth Watersports Centre. Further information is available by calling Tony Casey on 01326 312936.
