NOTE: The Welsh covered here is what we would call “Colloquial Welsh”, i.e the Welsh that real people speak on the streets. If you have studied any Welsh previously, you may notice some subtle differences in both the spoken and written form – this is totally normal and don’t worry about it. If you’ve learnt “Rydw i” instead of “Dw i”, don’t worry! If you’ve learnt “Roedd” instead of “Oedd”, don’t worry!


One of the best places to learn Welsh is at work. Whether you work in a shop, an office or a field. There really is no substitute for having an environment where you are able to speak Welsh 9-5 five days a week!

If you have to learn Welsh for your work there are multiple ways to learn the language. Your employer may have plans to send you on a course, or they may have asked you to learn the language in your own time. Visit our “Learn Welsh/Dysgu Cymraeg” page for some ideas about how to learn Welsh.
