Where can I learn Welsh?

Many people prefer to go to a class to learn Welsh. There are many options available across Wales and even further afield! You can attend weekly lessons (normally 2 hours a week), a blended course where you do some of your study online and some in class. There are also intensive classes where you can study for at least a week 9-5, residential or non-residential.

The best way to learn the language would be to attend an intensive summer school where you’re immersed in the language over a few weeks.
