Hi. I am back, briefly, having discovered Manx on here. I had to drop Welsh because there was nobody to practise with, which renders my technique useless, pretty much, and I took up Mandarin Chinese instead, which is going better. But I still had a craving for Welsh and now I find Manx, which actually appeals more. I wondered, I have done a little research and it seems there are about 1,000 Manx speakers. What I wanted to ask was, are there any non-Manx people fluent in Manx, or if not fluent, competent to say, B1 level? If so, and you are happy to get in touch, can I ask what resources you have used to get to that level, and what opportunities you have had for actual speaking practice? Thanks, and Happy New Year to all my polyglot friends
Incidentally, the question is open to Manx residents, as I guess in some cases they have had to learn it as a foreign language, and therefore will be able to advise in the same way.
PS I know that the problem with Welsh as reported above is hardly likely to be less relevant with Manx, if not more so. I love languages and would learn more, but the right motivation makes a big difference, and do you know, this idea of conversational Manx really appeals.
