Welsh for the Family

The kids speak Welsh - you could too!

All children in schools in Wales either speak or learn Welsh.

Welsh for the family


It may be that you never had the chance to learn when you were at school or maybe you just need the confidence to start using your Welsh again. The time is right for you to start learning too!

We provide Welsh for the Family courses specifically designed to meet the needs of busy family life. Family-related content held at family friendly times and locations so you can learn while your children are at school or nursery.

We liaise with schools to provide free 'taster' courses for parents: these courses aim to teach some basic Welsh words and phrases, introduce games and activities to try with children. Should such taster courses be a success, we would then look at creating a course tailored for you and your school / community / playgroup.

Welsh from the Cradle


Wouldn't it be wonderful if you could introduce your baby to Welsh right from the start? Cymraeg o'r Crud is a relaxed, fun introduction to Welsh for babies, toddlers and their grown-ups. The course consists of 10 sessions, each session concentrates on a theme which introduces language patterns and volabularly suitable for use with babies and small children. The course is mainly suitable for beginners, but also suits Welsh speakers who want to gain confidence to start speaking Welsh at home from day-to-day.
