Just to confirm, is the 'l' in "Diolch" silent?

Not technically but it is often dropped at least where I live, but I personally don't drop it.

Is there any way to express further gratitude? Like "thank you" or "thank you very much"?

How do you pronouce the ch in the Welsh language?

Quite similar to the ‘ch’ in Scottish ‘loch’ or German ‘bach’.

See the pronunciation videos that we recommend in the course notes and discussions - look on the web for ‘youtube welshplus pronunciation basics’.

An example of the basic sound is here

Is "diolch" by itself always "thank you" or can it also be used less formally as "thanks"?

Either.

Does "io" form a dipthong here, or are they pronounced separately?
