What is the course about?

To enable students to communicate in Welsh in a wider range of situations and conversations with more confidence. The main aim of the course is to teach you to speak using naturally spoken Welsh. The course covers both southern and northern Welsh dialects.

What will we cover?

We aim to cover units 19-27 of Cwrs Sylfaen (published by WJEC). Topics include: Saying what you would do, would like to do, and should do; Comparing things.

What will I achieve?
By the end of this course you should be able to...

- Express opinions
- Make comparisons
- Start to be able to converse freely in the language.

What level is the course and do I need any particular skills?

Level 2. Suitable if you have studied Welsh for about one year recently, or have completed Welsh 2: module 2, or have equivalent experience.

For further details of the specific foreign language skills required for this level, please see the languages self-assessment chart, using the link at the top of this page. You can also find the chart at the start of the languages section in our course guide. You will also need to be able to respond to simple instructions and read course documents in English and be at ease with the use of numbers for daily activities (e.g using money, telling the time, etc).

How will I be taught, and will there be any work outside the class?

The course is based on the communicative approach:

- active students’ interaction
- emphasis on speaking and listening skills
- pair and group work
- role plays

Write a review
The structure of the course books (Mynediad and Sylfaen) is ok for class use but not helpful when trying to revise, particularly the lack of one complete vocabulary list. Many older people have learned English grammar and would like better grammatical explanations in year 2 as well as just understanding from context. The tutor did bring in plenty of other materials and the internet access in class is great for listening to various media. Most people had done Yr 1 and stayed the course so we were comfortable and happy, though some are always shy about speaking. I think if we had spoken more in previous terms we would have made more progress. Those who did regular homework had better vocab etc, but happily there was no criticism of anyone who didn't.

good friendly class and tutor and you get to speak welsh. A simple weekly homework is optional but good idea to do.
