Learn Manx is your ideal introduction to Manx Gaelic providing an exciting and enjoyable start to learning the language of the Isle of Man. Designed to encourage learners to speak, the first ten units provide you with the basic patterns needed to start using the language with the exercises and dialogues helping students to become familiar with conversational Manx.
