We have a range of lessons available online for anyone to access. These lessons range from beginner lessons with Manx phrases you can use in day to day life, through to the advanced lesson where Manx speakers are in conversation.

This is a graded course first translated into Manx by Brian Stowell. The lessons do not come with any grammar points but are an excellent introduction to the spoken language. Lessons 1-37 were recorded a number of years ago and give an excellent flavour of a more traditional pronunciation.
