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.
