Since there are limited resources for learning Manx (also referred to as Manx Gaelic), I decided to create a few lessons for fun. To test potential interest, I decided to post the first lesson here on this blog.
Visit this page for a description of Manx pronunciation. (Scroll down to the subheading ‘Manx pronunciation’.)
