Is the Welsh course North or South Walien?

Is the new Welsh course North or South Walien? I'm South Walien and I just want to check I'm learning the right dialect for my region.

I think it tries to teach both but if you only need one then you can ignore the other one.

It doesn't make a difference. The words are not extremely different, and the grammar is the exact same. A northern speaker can understand a southern speaker, and vice-versa.

It seems to be the southern dialect, as only 'eisiau' is accepted (more commonly written 'isio' in the northern dialect).

You do get to a dialects skill, and for the most part both dialects are accepted - if one isn't, you should report it :)
