Croeso: beginners' Welsh

Introduction

Unit image

Welsh is a direct descendant of the Celtic language which was spoken in Britain before, during and after the Roman occupation. It is Britain’s oldest spoken language, and possesses a rich cultural history. Closely related to Breton and Cornish, and more distantly to Irish, Manx and Scots Gaelic, it is today spoken by almost 600,000 people in Wales, some 20 per cent of the population.

Croeso is The Open University's beginners' course in Welsh and will give you a solid grounding in the basics of the language.

This unit is an adapted extract from the Open University course Croeso: beginners' Welsh (L196) [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)]
