- Say Something in Welsh Meet-up - Do you speak Welsh or want to learn yr hen iaith? Speakers and learners of all levels of Welsh are welcome to stop by our table and say “sut mae!” We will also be hosting two informal Welsh chat sessions for learners and speakers of any level on Friday and Sunday. Say Something in Welsh is a free online course based entirely on speaking. Created from the belief that language acquisition is a natural process at which anyone can succeed, it has no reading or writing components. Rather, through built-in revision, each lesson builds and expands on the spoken language skills taught in the previous lessons. Northern and southern dialect versions available! Use it online or download it to your favorite device, and make sure to spend time on the friendly forum where learners can get help and encouragement from eachother: www.saysomethinginwelsh.com.
