Congrats Welsh Team!
Welsh (for English Speakers) is now in Beta!
Great work throughout the Incubation Stage!
Good luck to everyone learning Welsh!
Get Started Learning Welsh Here:
This is an important milestone for Welsh learning, Duolingo and celtic languages. Congratulations Tîm Cymraeg!
I hope the story of Dywi Lingo and friends pans out to be a fully fledged soap opera.
Hooray! Congrats Welsh team! Now, to begin madly refreshing until it shows up on the site proper...
FYI: The YouTube link for pronunciation in Greeting 1 needs fixed a bit. It's linking to https://www.duolingo.com/skill/cy/www.youtube.com/user/welshplus. Make sure you go to https://www.youtube.com/user/welshplus in the meantime.
Congratulations! (And congrats Hyllning for getting the first post in the discussion forum!) :-)
I've been living in Wales for 4 years now and you don't know how much I love hearing this language - when I'm having exams at Uni it feels like I'm in the Harry Potter universe. However, finding time to actually study the language is relatively hard and expensive. Finally, there is a place for that online! Thanks for your hard work, it is much appreciated!!
That's good to know. I had my concerns at first when we decided to use TTS.
the voice is clear spoken as far as TTS goes from what ive seen. to be honest ive had more issues remembering that the font used makes I and l nearly identical ... needless to say it bit me in the butt when i got to Iawn '_';
Awesome!! The only other language I am looking forwards to is Icelandic!
Yay! I just started Welsh a week ago, and I'm glad that I can learn more now.
Another step forward for Celtic languages! Now just years or possibly decades until Scottish Gaelic! Yay... :'(
Seriously though, good job to the Welsh team, cannae wait! :) Lovely sounding language!
I'd love to have Cornish and Breton, as well. Just for a public resource, if nothing else. Manx would be nice, too, but that might be wishful thinking.
There is actually an app already that is just for Manx for iOS and Androids. Manx Gaelic has a surprisingly high level of publicly available resources for such a small language. Cornish, Bretons and Scots-Gaelic though I wish had more public visibility and access.
Congratulations, Welsh team!! This is so awesome! I don't want to bite off more than I can chew, but once I'm done with one of my trees, I'll definitely check out the Welsh course :)
I'm so happy this got released. Now I can see how much I have forgottenn (started learning a bit in 2009, but stopped due to personal reasons. Now I have the time and with this course a good opportunity to get back into it! Thank you so much!
Thank you to the development team! I've been looking for a Welsh course for a few years and I'm ridiculously excited for this.
