English, Welsh, Scottish… all these languages sound familiar. But I’m sure you ___HAVE_NOT_HEARD___ of Cornish. I wish I ___KNEW___ it, like my Granny does. Cornish is a Celtic language, used in Cornwall, a county in south-eastern England. ___CENTURIES___ ago, when the Anglo-Saxons invaded Britain, many Celts moved to the mountain areas. Some Celts even ___LEFT___ the country completely and settled in France. Speakers of Cornish stayed in the south-west. There the language ___WAS_SPOKEN___ until the late 1700s. But the number of speakers got smaller and the language almost disappeared. At the beginning of the ___TWENTIETH___ century, academics became interested in Cornish and started to study the ancient texts. From those old documents they managed to restore the language! Nowadays, if you visit Cornwall, you will hear a lot of it. The language is offered as an option in many universities, and students ___THEMSELVES___ choose to learn it. Like I did. I think it’s the ___MOST_DIFFICULT___ language I have ever learnt, but it’s interesting and it sounds very nice. I believe the Cornish language ___WILL_SURVIVE___.
