From Kowethas an Yeth Kernewek. More information from .

Friday 12th April to Sunday 14th April
Sandy Lodge Hotel, Hilgrove Road, Newquay, Cornwall, TR7 2QY

Kowethas An Yeth Kernewek will be hosting another Cornish Language weekend for all those interested in the Cornish language. The language weekend offers a relaxed and friendly atmosphere in which complete beginners through to advanced speakers can enjoy a range of classes, activities and talks to suit ALL levels. Entertainment and an excursion are also planned.
New for 2013 is a ‘Family Day’ on Friday 12th April, with easy, fun language activites for families with young children. As last year, Friday will also be a cramming day for those taking Cornish Language Board or Asset Languages examinations in 2013. Sessions will be held at all examination levels and cover everything needed for the exam, with plenty of practice.

The Sandy Lodge Hotel in Newquay is a family run hotel situated about a quarter of a mile from the railway station. All rooms are en suite, with television and tea and coffee making facilities. Parking is available in the hotel and in the adjacent St Anne’s Road. The hotel has a residents’ lounge, bar and dance floor – which we will shall use over the weekend.

Brief Programme (subject to minor changes):
· Friday: Family Day 1100-1600. ‘Dydh Stoffya’ cramming session, 1000-1600, for those taking Cornish Language Board or Asset Langauges examinations in 2013.
· Friday Evening: check in to accommodation; 1900 Dinner; meet up in the bar for music, poetry and getting to know each other.
· Saturday: 0800 Breakfast; 0900 to 1230 lessons in Kernewek; 1245 Lunch. After lunch an optional excursion led in Kernewek with English translation; 1900 Dinner, followed by entertainment in the bar.
· Sunday: 0800 Breakfast; 0900 to 1230 lessons in Kernewek; 1245 Lunch, followed by a final get together, summary of the weekend, and goodbye until next time!

For many of us involved in promoting Kernewek, at whatever level, the annual Pennseythun Gernewek is the highlight of the year. The committee of Kowethas an Yeth Kernewek is sure that 2013 will be no exception, and we look forward to seeing you in Newquay.
