Fun facts about Manx

There is one school on the Isle of Man, the Bunscoill Ghaelgagh, where all lessons are taught in Manx.

The language was declared extinct by UNESCO in 2009, which prompted Manx schoolchildren to write in Manx to UNESCO, asking what language they were speaking if Manx was extinct. The classification was subsequently changed to 'critically endangered'.

The last native speaker, Ned Maddrell, died in 1974.
