This product is well recommended for speaking and listening. However, it is not much good just by itself. There is actually a book which goes with the CD pack. If you want this Welsh learning double CD pack, then my advise would be to buy the book as well - so that you can carryout the exercises.
Regards.

Given the nature of the Welsh diaspora, learners probably fall under one of two categories: those near or in Wales, with adequate provision for supplementary learning (talking to Welsh-speakers, joining a club, etc.) and those far-flung, isolated people across the world who wish to learn something of a once native language. To this second category belong people with little or no Welsh heritage who are fascinated by the language. Given perhaps the use of English as a medium, and what I would think would be a certain lack of Welsh-learning resources in other languages, to this category also belong non-L1 speakers of English who want to learn Welsh. Given the nature of the language (very different from other standard languages taught in Anglophone schools), a solid beginning is a necessity. It is very easy to get discouraged early on--so much is unfamiliar, there are odd things like mutuations to get used to, and the syntactic structure is strange.
This is a worthwhile text to begin with, as the pacing is just right at the opening and the voices on the CD are really like real people (I could list some characteristics but will spare you--the people attached to the voices might be reading this!) This is engaging, and the grammar is introduced slowly and just right. There are of course other texts on the market, and I have tried one or two (but, as I just said, got discouraged); this is the best. But it is wise to buy the CDs too--the language is relatively difficult to pronounce at first.
There are a couple of more technical issues which might be addressed if and when there is a new edition. The internal margins of the book are very narrow, which means that using the book, flipping back and forth, going over pages three or four times, I can see the binding coming loose.

If you are a complete beginner, don't start with this! I have gone through the first cd, with the book, and found the cd sadly lacking! This is a language that requires lots of help with the pronunciation in the early stages. The book in itself is good, but there is a lot missing from the cd e.g. there will be a short dialogue from the book, but then there are 4 or 5 pages where you are left floundering trying to work out how the other written words/phrases are pronounced. Also, I found one of the "voices" not the easiest to follow to get the correct pronunciation-quite gruff! Good Luck! You'll need it!

Bought this not to long ago and was just taken in by the course. Its very intresting and takes the user from a basic level to a modaratley advanced one. I wouldnt kid you that this takes you to a fluent or even near fluent level, but with the advice of the book such as listening to Welsh language radio, you become proficent enough to have conversations with first language speakers to a good level, in a wide variety of subjects. Overall Excellent and really good vale, a reccomended buy!
