Learn Welsh - Swansea Bay Region: delivering Welsh language courses in the City of Swansea, and Neath Port Talbot county council areas.

Learn Welsh - Swansea Bay Region (LWSBR) forms part of Academi Hywel Teifi at Swansea University, a unit that promotes and facilitates Welsh-medium education throughout the university.

LWSBR provide Welsh courses in a host of locations across the region, which means that you don't have to travel far to attend a class. We also have some online courses for those who may find it difficult to attend regular classes at a local venue. 

Based in the Talbot building on Swansea University's Singleton Campus, LWSBR also has teaching staff located at our centres at Tŷ'r Gwrhyd (Holly Street, Pontardawe) and Tŷ Tawe (Christina Street) in Swansea's city centre. Please call in to ask about our courses and the variety of social activities we arrange locally to support Welsh learners. Give us a call on 01792 60 20 70, or  e-mail: learnwelsh@swansea.ac.uk
