LOL!!! :o

It reminds me of a welsh guy I once met, who spoke breton with a very thick english accent :-)

Thanks for sending this, I always wondered what cornish should sound like. It is not that difficult to understand the spoken parts :-)

I love Bagas Degol's "Party Like It's 1399." A favourite album.

erm....ive only just got to the spoken bit (internet is REALLY slow today) sounds like a really soft and lighter version of Welsh......saying that, they are related, but I mean you can actually hear the relationship.....- am I making sense????

It's still a little hard for me to understand, my Welsh has got REALLY rusty since I moved to Berlin.....I used to be so fluent ._( :-( :-(
