This coursebook has been produced by Agan Tavas to meet the needs of those learning under the structure of the Languages Ladder programme of the UK Depart ment for Children, Schools and Families. Unlike some other coursebooks this book teaches Cornish in a "can-do" way, and does not expect students to know the finer points of Cornish grammar from the beginning. The course starts with the basics -- which are all presented in a friendly and accessible way. This course is aimed at the Breakthrough level of the Languages Ladder. This consists of three stages and Skeul an Tavas is divided into three parts corresponding to those stages. The book contains many practical examples of natural Cornish. Students can practise adding to what they have learned by constructing further examples with the use of a dictionary. Skeul an Tavas contains a complete glossary of all the Cornish words found in the book. The illustrations will help students to learn the meaning of many Cornish words without reference to English. Skeul an Tavas will help any student to acquire Cornish as a spoken language for everyday use. The spelling used in this book follows the rules of the Standard Written Form agreed by the Cornish Language Partnership for use in education and public life. It employs the "Main Graphs" orthography, which may be more familiar to class teachers who have previously used Common Cornish. -- An lyver ma re beu darbarys gans Agan Tavas rag kollenwel othomow an re na usy ow tysky yn dann framweyth "Skeul an Yethow" a Asran Flehes, Skolyow ha Teyluyow an Ruwvaneth Unys.
