Why not learn some Welsh to use at the Eisteddfod?
A new Welsh language taster course will teach learners words and phrases to use at the National Eisteddfod, one of Europe’s largest cultural festivals, which this year visits Cardiff Bay (3-11 August).
The six-hour course, which is being held in locations across Cardiff and further afield, teaches vocabulary relevant to the Eisteddfod, such as ‘cystadlu’ (compete), ‘llwyfan’ (stage), ‘stondinau’ (stands) and ‘corau’ (choirs).
The course also includes advice on pronounciation. Simple phrases, for example ‘Ga i baned o de’ (May I have a cup of tea) and ‘Ble mae’r pafiliwn?’ (Where’s the pavilion?), will also be covered.
The course has been developed by the National Centre for Learning Welsh and its provider, Learn Welsh Cardiff. Information on Welsh courses, along with a range of activities for Welsh learners, will be available throughout the Eisteddfod, at the ‘Shw’mae Caerdydd’ learners’ centre in the Pierhead Building, Cardiff Bay.
