What dialect of Welsh is represented here - southern or northern?

Southern, since "dych" is being used which is "dach" in the north.

There are many dialect variations of the verb bod 'to be'. dach chi is a common variation especially in north-west Wales. dych chi is very common and there are other local variations in south-east, south, mid and west Wales. This course covers a very few dialect variations - if you spend a lot of time in one area you will quickly pick up the local accent and dialect where these differ from commonly taught forms.
