Croeso – Welcome

This is the ‘Now You’re Talking’ free Welsh taster course for absolute beginners.
This version introduces language forms used in south Wales.

In this short course, we’ll teach you how to get by in 10 social situations.


For each item of language you’ll hear

  • first, the Welsh – just listen
  • then, the meaning in English
  • finally, you’ll hear the Welsh again – this time, try and repeat it

You can pause and replay the audio at any time.
When you’re ready, move on to the next lesson.
