Welsh lessons in Dublin / Gwersi Cymraeg yn Nulyn

Draig Werdd is pleased to be able to announce that following the success of the first class a further Welsh language class for people that wish to progress beyond the beginner’s level will be held in Dublin this winter/spring. The class will be taught by Richard Morgan and will take place in Gael Linn, 35 Dame Street, Dublin 2 on Tuesday evenings from 5.30pm to 7pm.

The course will assume that students have substantially completed the Cwrs Mynediad book by the Welsh Joint Education Committee and have also made significant progress on the Duolingo Welsh English course that is available on-line and also on a smartphone app. The course book to be used will be the Cwrs Sylfaen (South Wales version), which is available on the internet via Amazon, Book Depository, GWales and other websites. The course will also include well-known poetry, hymns and short passages of text as appropriate.

The class begins on Tuesday the 16th of January and will run for 10 weeks. The cost of the course will be €80 for full-time students, €100 for Draig Werdd members and €120 for all others. Classes will be limited to a maximum of 8 participants.

If you are interested in attending the class please send an email with your details to welshclass@welshsociety.ie and Richard will get back in contact with you to give you the necessary details.

Welsh conversation in Cork / Sgwrsio yn y Gymraeg yn Cork

Members in the Cork area interested in practising their Welsh conversation are asked to contact Meirion Gwril (aka Martin Ball) at meiriongwril@gmail.com with a view to setting up a conversation group that would meet either monthly or fortnightly (according to demand). To be viable we feel a minimum of half a dozen people is needed.   Also, an absolute beginners class could be organized as part of such a group if enough interest is shown.
The aim would be to start this group towards the end of January 2018. A small charge to cover costs of room booking might be needed, dependent on numbers and where we decide to meet.

Gofynnir i aelodau yn ardal Cork sydd â diddordeb mewn sgwrsio yn Gymraeg i gysylltu â Meirion Gwril (aka Martin Ball) ar meiriongwril@gmail.com gyda’r bwriad o sefydlu grŵp sgwrsio a fyddai’n cwrdd bob mis neu bob pythefnos (yn ôl y galw). Er mwyn bod yn hyfyw, teimlwn fod angen o leiaf hanner dwsin o bobl. Hefyd, gellid trefnu dosbarth dechreuwyr llawn fel rhan o’r grŵp os oes digon o ddiddordeb i’w gael.

Y nod fyddai cychwyn y grŵp hwn tua diwedd Ionawr 2018. Efallai y bydd angen tâl bach i dalu am gostau llety, yn ddibynnol ar y niferoedd a lle rydym yn penderfynu cwrdd.
