Explore Welsh & Wales with OpenLearn

Updated Monday 18th January 2016

Get to know the language, identity and culture of Wales better by listening to our podcasts or taking a Welsh course.

With its fantastic heritage and lush landscapes, Wales is one of the most culturally rich countries with an ancient language that is still important today. For example, did you know during the Balkans, the Royal Welsh Fusiliers communicated in Welsh to avoid their plans being overheard? Or perhaps you were unaware that one of the 55 languages sent out to greet possible alien lifeforms on the NASA Voyager spacecraft was Welsh?

You can find the Open University’s home of bilingual, free learning in Wales over at OpenLearn Cymru (linked below).

And be sure not to miss OpenLearn's other fantastic features on all things Welsh:
