Learn Welsh Levels

Courses are available at different learning levels, from beginners to experienced learners:

Entry: A course for beginners, which introduces the present, past and future tenses.

Foundation: This level requires some experience of Welsh.  There will be opportunities to discuss everyday subjects such as family and friends, work and interests.

Intermediate: This level is suitable for those who are familiar with the main patterns of Welsh.  There are opportunities to develop conversational skills, with a little more writing, reading and listening.  

Advanced: Learners will discuss all kinds of subjects and themes.  Learners also develop their reading, writing and listening skills.  The main aim is to enable learners to become confident speakers.

Proficient: This level is for fluent learners and Welsh speakers who wish to build confidence to use and enjoy their language skills.  The course will be tailored to the needs of the class.

Further details are available in the Language competency framework for education practitioners

What our learners say

Anna Secondary Teacher, October 2022
For the first time ever I am feeling okay about actually trying to speak it! I am using more Welsh words and phrases in the classroom and encourage my students to do the same.
Perla Teaching Assistant, October 2022
As a TA and working in a school environment it allows me to participate in the children’s Welsh learning journey.
