Not too late to learn Welsh

27 days ago

It's not just children who will be returning to school in September.

Adults are being given the chance to return to learning with Welsh classes for all levels starting across the county from September 24.

The new programme, which details all the day and evening courses, is available to see now at www.learnwelsh.cymru

For those who would like a taste of what’s involved before signing up, there will be a one-day taster session held at Llandeilo Community Education Centre on Friday, September 14 from 9.30-4pm where you will cover the basics of pronunciation and general, useful, phrases.

Those returning to a higher level can try the Rustbuster course, which is available on the same day. This course will be held on three different levels – Mynediad (Entry), Sylfaen (Foundation) and Canolradd (Intermediate). The aim is to cover the work already completed in the previous year ready for the start of the term ahead.

The taster and Rustbuster sessions cost £8.

They can either telephone for a quick assessment or can join to see what level is best for them.

Carmarthenshire County Council executive board member for education Cllr Glynog Davies said: “We have a host of different courses held at locations across the county to suit every level, from beginners to the more advanced. So whether you want to learn Welsh to support your children to be bilingual, to be able to use Welsh at work or for any other reason, come and find out more at our taster session - you will be sure to receive a warm Croeso!”

The Learn Welsh Carmarthenshire team will be out on the streets of Carmarthen, Llanelli, Ammanford and Llandeilo in coming weeks, come along to find out more. You will be able to find the dates on the ‘Learn Welsh Carmarthenshire’ Facebook page www.facebook.com/ciosirgar also @learnCymraegSG on Twitter.

Telephone assessments are now available, email learnwelsh@carmarthenshire.gov.uk  for an appointment.
