What is the course about?

The aim of this course is to build on students’ basic communication skills in Welsh; to give them the opportunity to practise expressing opinions in Welsh and moving beyond talking about the “here and now”; to promote interest in and awareness of the language and its culture today.

This is a live online course. You will need:
- Internet connection. The classes work best with Chrome.
- A computer with microphone and camera is best (e.g. a PC/laptop/iMac/MacBook), or a tablet/iPad/smart phone/iPhone if you don't have a computer.
- Earphones/headphones/speakers.
We will contact you with joining instructions before your course starts.

What will we cover?

We aim to cover units 13-25 of Cwrs Sylfaen. Topics will include talking about favourite things, holidays, making plans and celebrations.

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

- Exchange factual and personal information
- talk about preferences and favourites.
- give opinions with extended reasons
- use different forms of the future tense with confidence.

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

Students should have completed Welsh 2 lower: module 1, or have equivalent experience. You should be familiar with the basic word order of Welsh and understand how to form simple sentence in the present, past and future.

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 number 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
- use of realia, pictures and authentic material
- use of audio-visual techniques when appropriate

Please note, students are expected to participate in oral classroom activities and to do some homework as and when required.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?

Shwmae! I first joined City Lit in 2017-2019 and it's great to be back teaching Cymraeg as part of our team of 3 committed Welsh tutors. I was brought up in north Pembrokeshire and was fortuntate enough to attend Welsh- and bilingual- medium schools where I acquired Welsh. The Welsh language has given me lots of opportunities and it's brilliant to be able to welcome new people into the language as a tutor. Welsh is a vibrant, living and thriving language, not just in Wales but also here at City Lit. When I'm not teaching online at City Lit, I'm a PhD researcher at Cardiff University in the pronunciation of adult second language learners of Welsh. I love learning languages and started learning Swedish with City Lit a few years ago, something I still keep up now.

Please note: We reserve the right to change our tutors from those advertised. This happens rarely, but if it does, we are unable to refund fees due to this. Our tutors may have different teaching styles; however we guarantee a consistent quality of teaching in all our courses.
