Learn Welsh (Cymraeg)

Our own Welsh language learning group has been inactive for awhile. We have been hoping to find someone who is fluent enough to lead it and who lives nearby. Might that be you?

Until then, we look to online help from sources like those below:

Say Something in Welsh:

This online community of learners offers three different levels of audio courses with the intent of helping all learners to speak and understand Welsh easily and naturally. It avoids wasting time on complicated grammar rules and reading/writing. Based on the latest research in language learning, the course provides downloadable MP3 files for free. The entire introductory course of 25 lessons, the practice sessions and vocabulary units are all entirely free of charge. Give it a go and you'll be speaking Welsh in no time!

 

Duolingo

Free interactive, game-style lessons include a variety of speaking, listening, translation, and multiple choice challenges.

Cymdeithas Madog:
