Learn Welsh Levels
Courses are available at different learning levels, from beginners to experienced learners and Welsh speakers:
Entry: This level introduces basic language patterns, including present, past and future tenses, and everyday words and phrases. If you’re new to Welsh, then you can start here.
Foundation: If you have a basic understanding of Welsh and are confident using present, past and future tenses, then try this level. You’ll get to discuss everyday subjects such as friends, family, work and hobbies.
Intermediate: This level is for those who are familiar with the key language patterns of Welsh. You’ll enjoy developing your speaking skills with a little more writing, reading and listening.
Advanced: With this level, the focus is on developing your spoken Welsh, with opportunities to discuss all kinds of subjects. You’ll also get to improve your reading, writing and listening skills.
Proficient: This level is for fluent learners and Welsh speakers who wish to build confidence to use and enjoy their language skills, whether spoken or written Welsh.
