jam-packed with everything you need to learn welsh (Western Telegraph)
The aim of this book is to teach you to understand and speak Welsh as it is spoken today. In order to achieve this, the language introduced is centred on a wide range of realistic, everyday situations.
The course covers the four basic skills - listening and speaking, reading and writing. If you are working on your own, the accompanying recorded material is particulary important as it will provide you with the essential opportunity to listen to Welsh spoken by native speakers and to speak it yourself within a controlled famework.
The coursebook contains 21 thematic units, which are preceded by an alphabet and pronunciation guide, a mutation chart for quick reference, and a map of Wales. A more detailed reference section, the key to the exercises, a Welsh-English vocabulary and an English-Welsh vocabulary are included in the back of the book.
There are two accompanying CDs and cassettes which are available separately or with the book in a pack.
Teach Yourself Welsh is the official coursebook for the Welsh Distance Learning Course of the University of Wales, Lampeter, http://welsh.lamp.ac.uk/camuSee all Product description

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!

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.

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!

This is helpful to get a basic grasp of welsh. Obviously you won't be fluent by then of this book and it is dated. Be careful when choosing - the focus is on hwntws- South Walian.Read more
