Welsh Language Learning Resources

Post by phoenix_rising » 25 May 2011, 17:57

Hey everyone,

For specifics on Welsh pronunciation I recommend any interested learners to check out the FREE BBC Big Welsh Challenge video course at:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/learnwelsh/b ... challenge/

The information is in the "Helpful Notes" section under any of the lessons.

If you're interested in learning to speak Welsh, I recommend that you forgo the Big Welsh Challenge video course and instead try the "Say Something In Welsh Audio Course". This course also provides both dialects: North and South and it focuses on using Welsh and speaking it, rather than memorizing words and translations. Trust me, you'll get much further and feel more confident with this than the BBC course.

It's great!

Hope this helps you all.

Hi Devon!
I think there are quite a few SaySomethinginWelsh fans on the board.
It really is an excellent course.
Are you learning north or south? I'm learning north, because I've visited the area and I love it there! Next time I go I'll be able to talk to people a little (if I'm brave enough :) ).

Nice to meet you,
CA

I've recently started this course (South Wales version) and it's amazing. You actually get to speak the language you hear in the streets rather than school Welsh. In fact I'm trying to get a group of learners together here in Essex so we can have regular practise with each other. Anybody interested?
