Enjoy your Welsh

Alongside our popular Learn Welsh courses, you can enjoy using and practising your Welsh by taking part in a range of informal learning opportunities.

Your local course provider will hold different activities during the academic year, from coffee mornings and book clubs, to quizzes, gigs, eisteddfod competitions and walking tours.

The National Centre for Learning Welsh also works with different partners, including the Mentrau Iaith language initiatives, to offer activities and events for Welsh learners.

On this page you'll find lots of other ideas for using your Welsh - whether it's listening to Radio Cymru or watching S4C, reading one of the 'Amdani' series of books for Welsh learners, or taking part in our 'Siarad' programme.

Mwynhewch - enjoy!
