The Cwrs Sylfaen App helps you achieve foundation level Welsh, based on the popular CBAC/WJEC course for adult Welsh learners.

It is the second App from CBAC's Welsh books, following on from Cwrs Mynediad - entry level (if you are just starting Welsh, start with that App, it teaches pronunciation and gives a basic level of conversational Welsh). This App, like the Cwrs Sylfaen book, looks to consolidate your Welsh into the ability to converse in daily life.

Cwrs Sylfaen includes all of the patterns from the book, along with all the vocabulary from both Cwrs Sylfaen AND Cwrs Mynediad, giving you knowledge of over 800 Welsh words. All new words and patterns are in the App as audio, to help you sound pitch perfect in Welsh.

This material has been augmented with audio exercises to get you thinking in Welsh, and short dialogues where you can take one of the parts, and practise having a real conversation.

The App is arranged in the same 30 unit structure as the book, with revision exercises to help you remember all that you are learning.

The application has been developed by Aberystwyth University and CBAC/WJEC, based on material in the Cwrs Sylfaen course by CBAC/WJEC.

Excellent app

This is an outstandingly good app for anyone who is learning Welsh. There are lots of practice exercises with recordings of different voices and different accents. Recommended 100%. Hope a cwrs canolradd app wil follow...
