Many people are quite surprised to learn that the UK is home to several indigenous languages. While English dominates as the primary language, indigenous languages like Welsh, Scots Gaelic, Irish Gaelic, and Cornish are integral to the nation’s heritage. These languages, although spoken by minorities these days, play a crucial role in cultural identity, historical continuity, and linguistic diversity. Even to class speakers of these languages as minorities, brings about a label, an identity, which supposedly needs protection. Indigenous languages in the UK have ancient roots, predating the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons. Welsh, for instance, evolved from the Brythonic language spoken by the ancient Britons. Scots Gaelic has its origins in the Celtic language brought to Scotland by settlers from Ireland. Cornish, a member of the Brythonic branch of Celtic languages, was spoken in Cornwall until it nearly died out in the 18th century but has seen a revival in recent decades.

Привет, понедельник! 📅 Last week was a busy one for the Russian language community - 225 years since the birth of Alexander Pushkin, yep, this is also a holiday. His timeless poetry still comforts in difficult moments and inspires people. Today, reading the eternal classics, I'm writing you about the eternal student problem... Time We can all postpone language learning for various reasons, but when students come to me after 100 hours, 200 hours of diligent self-study or who knows that kind of study because their results are very modest - it really makes me sad. Individual lessons are designed to help you speak in a short time. If after 50 lessons you cannot speak with some degree of mistakes, but freely at the everyday conversational level -- it is time to change something in your study routine. __________ If you plan to speak Russian well right away, check my schedule, I'm always glad to help. 🤟 *Alexander Pushkin, portrait by Orest Kiprensky ⬇️
