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.

It works now! You need to scroll down further, but it's there!

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!!

Pob lwc!

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 '_';

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.

3 years ago

https://www.duolingo.com/Ystonraeg

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.
