Due to the coronavirus pandemic and continued social distancing measures in the counties of Swansea and Neath–Port Talbot, and in accordance with Swansea University risk avoidance procedures, we have suspended all of our face-to-face learning activities and social events indefinitely.

However, the good news is that our provision continues online via video-link (using the free Zoom video conferencing platform).

Please contact us if you have a question about our programme of courses for 2020-21 listed here in the brochure: and also available on this website's coursefinder, or our learner support online events over the summer.

Best wishes to everyone from the LWSBR Team.

Online (at your own pace)

Fancy giving Welsh a go but can't commit to regular weekly classes? These simple on-line courses allow learners to work at their own pace from the comfort of your own home. You'll work through the units at your own pace knowing a tutor is there to support you when needed.

Week Course

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, these 5-day intensive courses will be offered as an online experience for the time being. Learners will join two tutor-led face-to-face group video conference sessions a day: one first thing in the morning and the second just after lunch. Both of these face-to-face online sessions are followed by independent directed study sessions and online tasks. You'll be working hard all day, and you'll need constant access to a computer therefore!

OK, so you won’t master Welsh in just a week but this course will help set you on the right track.

If you are eligible, and are able to present supportive documentation, you can use codes during the online registration process to get 40% off the full price – see website for more details.

Revision Sessions

14-18 Medi / September 2020
Llun / Mon - Gwe / Fri

Want to brush up on the content of your previous course before starting the new term? Here's a 5-day course full of related learning activities. This course offers a timely opportunity to:

catch-up on parts of the course;

consolidate what you've learned;

develop your skills further, and

boost your confidence in preparation for the next course.

The daily schedule will require learners to join their tutor for two daily class sessions via videolink: one first thing in the morning; the second just after lunch (GMT). Both of these face-to-face sessions are followed by independent directed study sessions and online tasks. So you'll be busy all day, and you'll also need continual access to a computer/tablet and a stable internet connection.
Price: £15
