Format: Paperback
I'd like to disagree with the previous reviewers' opinions concerning this book. The previous reviewers seem to have expected something different to what they got, which is fair enough, but that doesn't mean it's a bad book, just that you have to be careful when ordering books by post without first having a look through! I do see how the title might be a bit confusing. Firstly it might be best to explain what this book is actually about, to prevent further confusion..

It is NOT for those just starting out who wish to learn simple beginner phrases like `how are you' `my name is...'`where's the bus station' etc. It is not a beginner's welsh book that will teach you basic Welsh- you will need to get a different book for that. It does not teach you pronounciation- for that, go to a course, speak to a welsh speaker, or buy a CD. It is also not one of those humourous Wenglish-type books with sayings like `I'll be there now in a minute'. It is a book which contains lists of various Welsh idioms and sayings that you could use when speaking/writing. I'd say it's for those a little bit past beginner point and onwards, who want to enrich their use of language further.

Contrary to what the previous reviewer said, there are actually plenty of useful phrases in here that you might well want to express in Welsh -
for instance,

`nowadays' (yn y dyddiau hyn),
`occasionally' (ambell waith)
or `starting point' (man cychwyn).

Once you get past the beginner's `My name is...' you start wanting to say things a bit more complicated and this book is great for teaching you such phrases. I'd reckon this book would be good for any learner just past beginner, up to quite advanced speaker, as there is something in here of use to everyone.

I have recently purchased this book from yourselves and was thoroughly dissatisfied! I bought it as my niece is beginning to learn Welsh, being Welsh myself didn't need a book with help for pronunciations, just something to remind me what I had previously learnt myself. However when the book arrived I realized this is so not what the book has to offer! Thinking the term "learners" would be some indication as to the books content was a very big mistake! Things such as "sut wyt ti? - meaning - how are you? are not included but you will endeavor to find useless things however amusing, like "bleeding like a pig" - "yn gwaedu fel mochyn". Why would anybody seeking a book with the word "learners" in the title be looking for things that you would never use in an everyday situation!
All in all very,very dissapointed with the product!!!

The book was useless without a guide to pronunciation, so I have returned it to you. Please refund.

As I'm sitting a Welsh exam next year I was looking for a book that listed Welsh idioms for me to use in written work and this has hit the mark.
