Hello friends! I hope you’re all doing well and, now that the summer seems to be most of the way behind us, ready to get going with dysgu Cymraeg!
If you’re new to Cymraeg, you’ll be pleased to know that I’m beginning a new workshop group for total beginners. Derby Welsh Learners’ Circle intermediate and advanced groups have been meeting on Zoom since the beginning of lockdown and doing really well, but I was increasingly aware that I didn’t have anything suitable for new learners.
All Derby Welsh Learners Circle workshops are free to join but I ask that you consider buying me a coffee if you take part. The first beginners’ workshop will be on Saturday 12th September at 1:30pm for one hour. After that we will meet mostly fortnightly. If you’d like to join in, leave a comment, get in touch via the contact page or ping me on social media.
Intermediate learners can join me for a workshop on Saturday 12th September at 10:30pm. Again, get in touch if you’d like to join the group.
I’m always looking out for things which are going to help learners and this week I’ve been looking at Welsh language apps.
Gofalu Trwy’r Gymraeg is an app created by Swansea University for people working or studying in a medical setting who would like help with relevant Welsh phrases. You can download it for Apple and Android devices. Learn more about it here.
Ap Iaith is designed by Trinity Saint Davids to help children learning Welsh as a second language in school. It has a theme park setting and helps with grammar including past, present, future and conditional tenses. Download from the Apple or Android stores or find out more about it here.
Let me know how you get on with these and share your favourite Welsh apps in the comments or on the fforwm.
Hwyl am y tro!
