Cryptic Crosswords for Beginners

Toni Koppi

Language Room

Do you find cryptic crossword clues mostly nonsense?

Would you like to learn about the different types of clues and how to interpret and solve them?

Do you want to engage in a mental activity that can be challenging and involves lateral thinking?

This course, however, comes with warnings: your brain may hurt after each class, and you may become addicted spending many hours each week on cryptic crosswords as I do.
