They range from one day sessions during the year to a week long session in the summer.
► Sadwrn Siarad
The Saturday courses are an excellent opportunity to meet up with other learners from different areas, and to practice your Welsh in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
Taster Session: You will get a taster of Welsh by covering the basics of pronunciation and learning to exchange greetings, personal information and likes and dislikes. You will learn to use numbers, colours, the days of the week and how to talk about the weather.
Entry 1: You will be revising the past tense, possession (“gyda fi”) and the imperfect (“Ro’n i, Roedd e/hi”). You will also start looking at “Hoffwn i, Dylwn i” (I’d like, I should).
Entry 2/Entry 1&2/Foundation 1: You will be doing lots of revision of the patterns you’ve already learnt this year. You will also start looking at how to use “ddim o / mo”.
Foundation 1&2/Foundation 2: You will be doing lots of revision of the patterns you’ve already learnt this year. You will also start looking at using “sy, oedd, fydd” in emphatic sentences.
Intermediate: You will be doing lots of revision of the patterns you’ve already learnt this year. You will also start looking at “Bues i” (I was).
Advanced: You will be revising a number of language patterns you have studied so far at Advanced level. Your tutor will choose a topic of interest for the session and there will be plenty of opportunity to practise your speaking skills.
Proficiency: This class is suitable for fluent students, both first and second language. You will revise and practise using various language patterns using spoken and written classroom activities. The aims of this session are to build confidence and to hone your Welsh language skills.

The Sadwrn Siarad+ is a great opportunity to take part in recreational activities through the medium of Welsh. The workshops are divided by level, and the use of Welsh will be adapted to reflect this, so there will be something for everyone, from Entry to Proficiency level. The aim of the event is to give Welsh learners the opportunity to use and hear the language in a natural setting.
Details about the day will be published here very soon.

Extra Practise +
We’re always here to support you. There are many opportunities for you to use your Welsh outside a classroom enviroment within the Glamorgan area.
You can start slowly if you want, by going with your tutor to an event for learners. You could then join a Welsh Reading Club maybe, or go to a Coffee Morning. As you become more confident, you could then maybe join fluent speakers at a Welsh Society, or at Welsh events. There’s plenty of choice. Have a look at our Social Calendar, and keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
