How does it work?
Watch and learn! See and hear how to speak Manx by watching video footage of native speakers.
Build confidence on a computer. Before testing your new speaking skills in the real world, record yourself, then play back to compare your pronunciation with a native speaker. (Note that we dont use electronic voice analysis: the human ear is usually more accurate.)
Play interactive games. The comprehension quiz prompts you to react to real life situations, while a challenging recording quiz tests your knowledge and pronunciation.
You earn points for every game you play. High scorers can go on to win bronze, silver and gold awards, which you can print out as a record of achievement.
You can learn on the move. Carry on learning in the airport lounge or on the ferry. Just print out the phrasebook sheets included in the program and take them with you.
History on the Manx Language
Only a small minority of the Isle of Man’s population is fluent in the language, but a larger minority has some knowledge of it. It is widely considered to be an important part of the Island’s culture and heritage.
Like Scottish Gaelic and modern Irish, Manx is derived from older forms of Irish. The earliest known language of the Isle of Man was a form of Bythonic.
