Learn Manx is your ideal introduction to Manx Gaelic providing an exciting and enjoyable start to learning the language. Designed to encourage learners to speak, the first ten units provide you with the basic patterns needed to start using the language with the exercises and dialogues helping students to become familiar with conversational Manx.

The App will benefit anyone wishing to start using Manx as well as those who understand some of the language but who would like to refresh their language skills. With its voice-recording and playback function, the exercises encourage you to speak the language by answering questions orally and comparing your answers to model responses.

The revision lessons that accompany the course use the TT Races as a key theme and help to develop language skills in an enjoyable and humorous way.

This App is based on the Manx Heritage Foundation's successful adult language course, Saase-jeeragh.

Key features:
★ Hundreds of words and basic phrases to give a foundation in the language
★ Record responses to questions and compare with a model answer
★ Dialogues and comprehension
★ Summaries of key language patterns
★ Integrated bilingual dictionary
★ Flashcard learning system to help revise vocabulary and phrases

The production of this learning resource has been made possible thanks to the very generous financial support from Sure Isle of Man.

Ratings and Reviews

Excellent app for learning Manx


This is a great way of learning Manx. The system is logical, easy to use and provides an excellent introduction to the language. The material is perfect to really start speaking Manx and get to grips with the language and how it works. Brilliant job! :)

Needs to be updated!


Needs to be updated for ios11!



Yindyssagh! Wonderful! At last, I'm learning Manx - and this is the way to do it.

The App provides short lessons - never so much that you're overwhelmed - where you learn by example. Being 'conversational', they are meaningful and easy to follow. There's a little vocabulary to learn with each 'lesson'. You pick the grammar up as you go along - just as you did when you acquired your first language as an infant. There are opportunities to listen, then record and playback to compare and perfect your pronunciation. This works for vocabulary and phrases as well as for 'conversational' question and answer sessions that allow you to test your understanding. Animated 'Speech Bubble' conversations give you the opportunity to follow longer dialogues.

Perfect bite sized learning in 10 minute sessions. So easy to pick up and put down when ever you have a spare moment.

And, for me, it really works. If only this had been the way I was taught French (many years ago) at school - I failed miserably then.
It's nearly 40 years since I bought a copy of First Lessons in Manx (price 37 1/2 p from the Lexicon) and finally, thanks to the MNH Learn Manx App, I'm making progress!

So, go on..., download it now. Get learning and have fun on the way.
