There's a historically ill-informed piece on Cornish on Yahoo at the moment:

http://uk.news.yahoo.com/041024/325/f5706.html


From a historical point of view, Arthur (if he existed) was not necessarily
Cornish as the article claims, and both he and Boudicca would have spoken
varieties of Brythonic, not specifically Cornish.

BBC Radio Cornwall have a series of Cornish lessons for beginners:
