‘Sharpen up your Welsh!’ Higher 2 Course with Ifor ap Glyn

Becoming proficient in Welsh is one thing – on this course, we’ll examine some of the tricks you can use to enrich your Welsh and make it sound more natural.

The course will offer opportunities to:

  • learn more about Welsh idioms, and when to use them
  • dialect features of Welsh (focussing on the areas of those who attend the course)
  • how different ‘tags’ (such as ynde, ‘lly, ‘sti, m’wn) can play their part in conversation and recounting anecdotes
  • swearing(!) and Welsh humour in general.

We’ll also learn to identify English patterns that can creep into our Welsh  – and how to replace them with more idiomatic usages.

Suitable for fluent learners  – who’d like to sharpen their Welsh up further!

This course will be led by our guest tutor, Ifor ap Glyn. Ifor was brought up in London  but now lives in Caernarfon. He graduated in Welsh and Welsh History from UCW Cardiff, and he has produced several series about the Welsh language for S4C and Radio Cymru, including ‘Ar Lafar’ and ‘Hanes yr Iaith mewn 50 gair’.
