Absolutely fantastic

I hated learning Welsh when I was in school and had very little interest in it. As I’ve got older, I’ve wanted to learn Welsh out of interest and because it’s my heritage. I was put off by the thought of night school and then I discovered this app. In fact I’d seen the app mentioned and spoken about in various places and decided to give it a go. I’m so, so pleased that I did. I’m thoroughly enjoying the course and love the playful, relaxed approach to learning. None of the obsession with grammatical or technical niceties that you get in academic settings. The first 7 challenges are free which is a very generous amount of content for Ssiw to provide free of charge. Access to the whole course and content costs just £10 a month. I’m still on the free ones but I won’t hesitate to subscribe once I’ve completed them. I never expected learning Welsh to be so addictive or fun. If you can play a game on your phone or tablet you can definitely learn Welsh. Diolch o galon SSIW

This is the first time I’ve made real progress on learning Welsh

The app is only part of the package which includes forums and live online Welsh conversation sessions as well as face to face meetings and conversations.

It is focussed on teaching you to speak Welsh and works in the same way that a child growing up would learn the family’s language. There are no books and you are encouraged not to make notes just mistakes as a way of cementing the language in your brain.

There are three levels as well as advanced speaking after that. Each level has 25 challenges and level one is free. Level 2 and 3 are subscription based but not expensive.

I have been following the course for more than 18 months now and I’m halfway through level 2. I can honestly say that I’ve learnt more Welsh than when I was in school in Wales and when I went to night school in my twenties. It is, as most of these reviews confirm, an excellent way to learn Welsh and I can’t praise it enough.

Try level one for free and if you really want to learn Welsh it will get you speaking simple Welsh very quickly. Pob Hwyl 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

Must be the quickest pain free way to learn!

Really works in getting you to speak quickly. Inspiring and supportive forum. Would thoroughly recommend, trust the method. Just spent twenty minutes chatting with a stranger with nearly everything said in Welsh after only two years learning from no Welsh at all. Can be done quicker than this old brain.
