Enjoy using your Welsh at the Learn Welsh Events 

The National Centre for Learning Welsh holds several national events each year. In 2021, we held the following virtual events.


Business Forum

We held a Business Forum for Welsh with David Thomas, Jin Talog and Daniela Schlick, Helo Blod. It was interesting to hear about the businesses, their background and how they use the Welsh language in the delivery of their services.

A big ‘diolch’ to the speakers and to everyone who attended the event.

We had an informative and interesting session with the late Aled Roberts, Welsh Language Commissioner on Welsh Language Rights Day, 7 December 2021. Diolch yn fawr to everyone who took part and for all the questions on the night.
