Using your Welsh
Practice and Enjoy
Once you’ve mastered the basics, there are plenty of opportunities to practise your Welsh. There are ‘hubs’ such as Saith Seren in Wrexham, Tŷ Tawe in Swansea and Theatr Soar in Merthyr Tydfil, which organise Welsh language music gigs, walking trips and drama productions, to name just a few activities. They also have cafes and bars where you can socialise in Welsh.
Wherever you live your local Menter Iaith should have a wealth of opportunities for you to socialise in Welsh, through classes and activities. The Wales-wide network of local initiatives support communities to live, work and socialise in Welsh - whatever your level.
Media and Online
Don’t forget you can work on your Welsh on social media, online and by just sitting in front of the TV. S4C, which broadcasts wholly in Welsh, has a new strand Dal Ati (Keep at It) for Welsh learners every Sunday morning or via the on-demand service Clic. English language subtitles are available on most of S4C's programmes.
Why not listen to BBC Radio Cymru Welsh radio programmes, available live or on the iPlayer, download its weekly podcast for more advanced learners or follow its online service Cymru Fyw. Find out more here.
