Croeso: beginners' Welsh
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.
This OpenLearn course provides a sample of level 1 study in.
You can learn more about Wales, the Welsh people and the Welsh language in the free course Discovering Wales and Welsh: first steps, which is based on the Open University course LG001 Discovering Wales and Welsh.
