Description

In this episode, Nina Cnockaert-Guillou is talking to Nicola Tooms and David Kilgallon from the Isle of Man, who both have children at Bunscoill Ghaelgagh, the only Manx-medium school in the world. They explain the origins of their love of the Manx language and culture, and talk about raising their children in a bilingual environment, language revitalisation and how they are using Manx in many different ways!
