I lived in Wales for a few years, and learned a few phrases. It's a very difficult language to learn, and is one of the oldest in Europe, I believe.

I came across a pleasant Welsh song recently, written and performed by an actor from Game of Thrones.

Good luck.

"The World Must Conform to Our Lord and not He to it." Rev. Dennis Fahey CSSP

"My brothers, all of you, if you are condemned to see the triumph of evil, never applaud it. Never say to evil: you are good; to decadence: you are progess; to death: you are life. Sanctify yourselves in the times wherein God has placed you; bewail the evils and the disorders which God tolerates; oppose them with the energy of your works and your efforts, your life uncontaminated by error, free from being led astray, in such a way that having lived here below, united with the Spirit of the Lord, you will be admitted to be made but one with Him forever and ever: But he who is joined to the Lord is one in spirit." Cardinal Pie of Potiers

Isn't the native language of Cornwall similar to Welsh?

Yes it is, although alas Cornish is extinct in natural spoken form. Manx which has a few native speakers is also in the family. Out of the British Celtic tongues welsh is by far the most prolific. And I mean Brythonic not Gaelic.

Manx is Goidelic. You may be thinking of Breton, which is certainly more commonly used than Cornish.
