12 simple stories to help your child learn Cornish.
Come and read with Magi Ann, Pero, Orsik, Dolly and Hikka.
Read along, listen and tap on the words to hear the pronunciation and to see an English translation.
The Magi Ann stories were originally written by Mena Evans to help young children and their families learn Welsh. These stories were developed into a prize-winning app by Menter Iaith Fflint a Wrecsam. Now, Golden Tree have translated Magi Ann into Cornish to help the next generation of Cornish speakers get off to a flying start.

Ratings and Reviews
Seems great on IPad!
I am not usually great for reviewing apps I like/ dislike, however I felt given the past 2 reviews it would be only fair to help bump up this developers app and hopefully attract a few more people to using it. Of course, I am an iPad user and so cannot comment on how it works on a phone so just bare that in mind. Also, my experience so far is very limited but from what I’ve seen, it works and functions as intended.
I’ve always been in favour of utilising such apps (aimed at children) no matter what your age, as a way of learning a new language. They are a great way to dip your toes into your new journey, taking away the intimidation from getting started and is often methods used for teaching children that remain effective no matter what your age, specially if (like a child) your just starting!
So far the app functions perfectly and as intended. You get simple phrases which you can read allowed to yourself and you simply press a a button for a voiceover that reveals the proper pronunciation on the Cornish words. There is not a lot to review as the app is very straight forward and simple, which is perfect to start off with whilst you learn a few words in the language of our ancestors! Have fun!
Great simple stories, easy for adults and children alike to grasp.
My only comment is around scaling. The iPhone version didn’t scale correctly on my iPhone XR making the page turns a bit tricky! Perhaps a quick fix from the developer can help.
Tech issues on iPhone X
There’s no sound at all; toggling the music icon makes no difference and there’s no sound when you tap on words. As another reviewer pointed out, the page scaling needs fixing. It’s difficult to press the button for the next page. And the app can only be viewed in landscape? It’d be really interesting to learn Cornish but these apps (Version 1 and 2 have same issues) are a turn-off. Hope they can be fixed! Or is it a problem with my phone…
