You know already that England has small green fields, gentle hills, lakes, rivers, and winding country roads. Well, far to the Southwest of England is a magical land which first formed its landscape over 200 million years ago. Then the Ice Age and years of wind and rain have shaped this land into a very special place called Dartmoor with its steep hills and rocky tops called the Devon “Tors”.

Do you like walking in the wilderness, magnificent views, fresh warm summer air, the freedom to wander anywhere?  Well, this is Dartmoor and there is more!

There will be some facts, some history and the “Hound of the Baskervilles” as well as some live music, but mostly and importantly lots of opportunities to practise your English skills as you take part in a short play which takes place at Hey Tor. This is an opportunity to learn about some Devon dialect and use this language such as, “those are great Tea Drinkers”, pair of soft boots and “Ark at ee”, listen to him.

There will be fantastic pictures, videos, and interactive speaking.

So, I invite you to take part in our Dartmoor walk.

The history of the British Isles is the history of peoples speaking many languages. The English language first found its voice in about AD 447 as the Anglo Saxons steadily pushed the ancient Celtic languages of Britain into the far west corners of Britain. Some of these languages are still spoken today. Cornish is one of them. Let us take a journey from the Speakers home town of Tavistock in Devon across the river Tamar into the magical land of Cornwall. Although still part of England this land has its unique identity and culture and language. We arrive in the ancient capital of Cornwall, today called Launceston and through English learn how to ask for our tea, coffee, apple juice and cake in the Cornish language. You might travel to Cornwall one day and be able to use this Cornish.

The United Kingdom is a union of many different countries united by the English Language. The countries of the UK each have a rich and diverse culture. A brief look at the history of the English language, which pushed the Celtic languages and culture to the Western parts of Britain, will lead to an understanding of why Britain is so multi-national and interesting. Let’s take a journey around Britain and explore the cities, landscapes, and art of each country. Learn a sentence in each Celtic language and ask the question. If I were to live in the UK, in which country would I choose to live.
