► Intensive Course - Year 1

The Intensive Course covers two whole levels in one year – Entry part 1 and 2 and Sylfaen part 1 and 2. It is suitable for beginners, introducing vocabulary, basic language patterns and everyday phrases initially. Once familiar with these patterns, the emphasis will be on speaking the language, with an opportunity to discuss a wide range of topics. You will be eligible to sit two WJEC exams on this course – one in January and one in June. Revision for this will be part of the work in class.

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.
