The two best, best resources for self-learning, apart from Duolingo itself, for visual learners, are the series of videos on pronunciation on youtube:- https://www.youtube.com/user/welshplus

and the Big Welsh Challenge course :- http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/learnwelsh/bigwelshchallenge/ (click on 'enter course', then 'skip introduction'), the section 'practice with tutor' is particularly useful, especially the male South Wales presenter, who is a well know, very funny Welsh actor. (Ignore the 'archive notice' and click on 'enter course', it works fine.).

The book that we have linked to in the Welsh course on Duolingo is here https://cls.byu.edu/welsh/BYU_Cwrs_Mynediad.html

Hard copies are available through all the usual book sellers.

For auditory learners 'Say something in Welsh' is very good and has a wide network of supporters in particular its popular Facebook group. https://www.saysomethingin.com/welsh/course1

Finally don't forget to join our Facebook group where further discussion takes place and the writers respond to queries. https://www.facebook.com/groups/welshduolingo/

Also here is a link to an fairly good article about mutations:- https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Welsh/Mutations#Soft_mutation

Here is a website which gives a daily crossword and also a range of 'her geirfa' vocabulary challenges:- http://www.happyhere.co.uk/

In addition for people not anywhere near a Welsh class, there are a number of people and places that offer online Skype lessons. Here is the link to the Skype courses of one of the Welsh centres in Wales:-http://www.coleggwent.ac.uk/welshcentre#.V1Zh_5PR-V5

It's listed using its Welsh name, 'Cymraeg i'r teulu' , the first book would be useful, especially the earlier units which we've modelled some of the early units on, there is also a free 'ap' of the first three units. If you can afford then both books would be useful, otherwise there are more units modeled on Cwrs Mynediad and the free Cymraeg i'r Teulu 'ap' covers some early important grammar.

It is definitely worth looking at local Cymraeg i Oedolion (Welsh for Adults) courses. In the Gwent area, for example, there are regular Saturday and week-end schools and a week-long summer school as well as regular weekly day-time and evening classes and informal chats.

Also look at local Menter Iaith websites for all sorts of learning opportunities.

There are also regular classes and groups in several other towns and cities in Britain and other countries.

Hi, I thought it might be interesting to find out if there are any good mobile apps to learn Welsh. All of them are available on Play Store and most are also to be found on iTunes Store.

This is a personal selection based on experience with many different apps. I was mostly interested in free apps about Welsh (or about Wales) with an English language version, because it’s much easier for beginners to use and you can compare Welsh and English to learn something new.

Below is the list of apps grouped into themes and in alphabetic order.

Enjoy!

Complete courses:

Lovely free course for beginners, offers a variety of activities and contains plenty authentic audio recordings. A more advanced course from the same developer is available for purchase.

Say something in Welsh, a great Welsh course available from the website and via app. Users can choose between North/South Welsh pronunciation. The Challenges and Course 1 are for free and there’s more paid content. I highly recommend this app.

Grammar-specific:

Another amazing app that teaches you how to use mutations properly. There is a list of words causing mutation, you can also look up grammar rules regarding prepositions, numbers, etc. Good to have it in your toolkit.

Welsh Number Whizz is an app designed to help you learn the traditional vigesimal number system. Could be useful especially for us Duolingers, as the Welsh course focuses on the decimal system.

A fantastic tool to learn verbs and their conjugations. The app offers several mini-games to practice Welsh conjugation.

Vocabulary-specific

I put Anki here as one of the two tools I know and use for flashcards. Anki is available both in a desktop and app version. There are a few big decks with Welsh flashcards, you can find them here: Dal Ati Android and iOS

For all those who have access to S4C this is a very useful app to learn vocabulary that is used in S4C programmes.

I fell in love with this cute game from the first tap. Such a great idea to explain the legend of two dragons in Dinas Emrys and turn it into a Welsh learning app. Great music and sounds, try it out!

If you want to learn some medical Cymraeg, check out this one: nicely arranged topics with authentic recordings and English translations. Simple and intuitive, well worth taking a look.

Many of you probably know Memrise, a popular website and app for learning languages and other subjects using flashcards. But do you know that there are many great decks (or courses, as they are called on Memrise) with Welsh vocabulary? Take a look here to see a list of Welsh flashcard courses on Memrise:

Interesting vocabulary app for learning Welsh. 8,160 words structured in about 200 levels arranged by number of letters and alphabetic order. Each level contains about 20-25 words. The app is nicely designed and fun to play. Perhaps one downside is that many of these words are old or very specialised and I often have to look up the English translations to find out what something is. Nevertheless, you will surely get to know lots of vocab after completing all the levels, so give it a try.

Dictionaries

A very nice Welsh-English and English-Welsh dictionary. Recognizes mutations, contains common phrases. And it works offline as well. A must-have.

  • GPC Geiriadur Prifysgol Android and iOS A monolingual dictionary of Welsh, less useful for beginners, but definitely something to have on your be-able-to-use wishlist. Great features: you can download the whole database to your memory card and there are language games.

Other:

This one is perhaps not for beginners, but it’s good to know about it for the future. Contains a number of different translations of the Bible into Welsh from different periods of history.

This app allows you to buy a digital edition of Lingo Newydd, a bi-monthly magazine for Welsh learners. Articles are colour-coded to mark difficulty and there are audio recordings of articles (which you wouldn’t get in the paper edition). You can either but a single issue for £1.49 or a subscription plan (Lingo Newydd costs £9.99 year). Ap Golwg also gives access to the Golwg360 website. It’s totally free and has a useful VOCAB button at the top that shows definitions of words in articles. You don’t need the app to access the website, but it’s nice to have a shortcut to news in Welsh on your mobile device.

Fabulous app about the history of Ceredigion and Wales. Contains text and recordings in Welsh and English.

What others have said is good advice, but as a self-taught learner (who doesn't live in Wales), I have found that most books and resources for learners tend to be of the Southern variety. I have to say that I do sometimes mix up North/South aspects of sentences which I'm sure I wouldn't do if I got plenty (or at least some) speaking practice with native Welsh speakers, but I figure that we're always being told that Welsh people will understand no matter which variant we use and whether we remember our mutations or not. I know these things would no doubt be important if we were sitting a formal exam, but if the aim is to just communicate . . . . . . . :-) As for SSIW — you could always do both courses!

Pronunciations vary a fair bit across Wales, and vocabs and grammar vary a little. The 'north' vs 'south' thing is a misleading over-simplification. SSIW offer two different pronunciations out of the several. What they call 'south' is probably easier to pronounce for people used to English. If you are likely to spend more time in north-west Wales, say, then perhaps go for their 'north'.

Your choice. Do you live/have family somewhere in a particular area of Wales? That might help you to determine which dialect would be the most useful to you in everyday exchanges. I like the Southern lessons, myself. The speaking speed of the Southern courses are also just a tid bit faster than on the Northern, in my experience.

It does tend to miss information though. In the first series it says that "chi" is for talking to one or more people and never mentions that it can be the formal form. It also says that "fo" means "it" rather than "him" and never mentions that words have gender.

They do mention that words have gender (and go over why certain words change and others don't), but for a large part they mention something quickly and then try to use it throughout the course so you just get used to saying something that way. They also tend to introduce things in parts and add to them later.

I was curious what meaning would be understood by 'Cwrs Mynediad' to a native Welsh Speaker? The literal translation appears to be 'Access Course'; so would this be equivalent to 'Adult Education' in English or does it mean something more specific (or possibly more general) in Welsh, such as 'Beginner's Course'?

I'm only a learner, too, but it's basically "Entry level course".
You will often see "Mynediad" on a building to indicate the Entrance, or will frequently see "Dim Mynediad" to mean "No entry".
The follow-on course is "Cwrs Sylfaen" which is the "Foundation level course" followed by "Cwrs Canolradd" which is the "Intermediate level course". Hope this helps

Not necessary if you use Windows - try searching for the "To bach" software (it's free). It uses the "AltGr" key to enable you to type the ^ accent over all the letters that may need it within just about any application you use on your computer: â ê î ô û ŵ ŷ Â Ê Î Ô Û . It's very, very, easy to use.

You could also use Character Map (built into Windows), find the correct character, copy it, then paste it where you want. If you're using a suitable application and keyboard, type "0175" on the numeric keypad, then "Alt + X" and it should put in the correct character (this also works using the numbers on the main keyboard for me). If this works for you, the code for the ŷ character is "0177" then "Alt + X". For me this way of doing it works if I use Word, but doesn't work as I'm typing this message. If you're using Word (or similar), you could get Autocorrect to replace a particular combination of letters/symbols with ŵ or ŷ automatically for you - sadly autocorrect won't work for many applications . . . . .. but "To bach" does.

Before I found "To bach", I used to put both letters - ŵŷ - into something like Word, copy them to the clipboard, paste into wherever I needed one of them, then delete the one I didn't use. For me, this was the most reliable way to get them into other applications (e.g. this message) as it always worked.
Can't help for Mac or Android as I haven't got them. Hope this helps. (and I am not connected in any way to whomever wrote the little "To Bach" utility — I'm just a big fan of it!)

On OS X on a Mac you can just set it up to use its 'Welsh' keyboard layout (same layout as British, but with different effects with the Alt key), and then the ŷ, ŵ, ô, etc are available by pressing alt-y, alt-w, alt-o, etc. Very simple.

On iOS, just keep your finger pressed on the key and a sub-menu of related characters will pop up, including those with the Welsh diacritics ˆ`´¨. Even simpler than OS X.

I think that Windows has a similar Welsh keyboard layout to OS X tucked away somewhere, but I am not sure how to get to it.

I just completely accidentally hit the little red down arrow. I hope these arrows and numbers are meaningless. If not, apologies. I am finding the Now Your [sic] Talking series on YouTube very helpful. Lesson one here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?list=PL1-gV-Koefy_wuSgu7lJL-UO7qFlCFM4I&params=OAFIAVgB&v=8RgBSQVhJFM&mode=NORMAL

Dim problem, you just accidentally knocked our approval down a little. They have real significance although there are a little feedback. You can actually reverse it by clicking on the up arrow.

Yes, the Now we're talking course is good. It would be great if it were to be updated.
