Learn to speak Welsh with Cwrs Mynediad, the standard course for adults beginning to learn Welsh.
The App is designed to help beginners that are following the Cwrs Mynediad course book. Even if you aren’t following the course, the App provides material suitable for anyone interested in learning the language.
Cwrs Mynediad contains 30 units. Each unit contains the following:
-Patterns : words and phrases with audio so that you can see and hear key language patterns.
-Vocabulary : new words introduced in the unit.
-Grammar : details of grammar that is introduced in each unit, including mutations and verbs.
-Exercises : audio exercises where you can practise speaking and understanding.
-Dialogues : hear examples of Welsh conversation.
In addition to seeing and hearing the material, you can also record and playback yourself saying the patterns and exercises, helping you to assess how you are progressing.
It is possible to learn Welsh conversation and phrases from this App, but the App is best used in conjunction with lessons with a real tutor. The App will enable you to practise during the week so that you reinforce what is being taught in the classroom.

Ratings and Reviews
£4-99 doesn't buy the whole course - Completely wasted my money.
It was not clear that only the first 10 units were included in the app. Subsequent units require additional purchases. I am not an absolute beginner, so wouldn't gave purchased the app if this had been clearly stated. £4-99 completely wasted!
Very disappointing. I have taken this course previously in a class room setting so this was my obvious choice for an app to help me out. However the voice was too quiet to hear there was no structure no explaining or guidance to what you were actually repeating. Defiantly a waste of money!!!!!!
Well worth the cost
Bought this as a starter to see if I thought it worth investing in evening classes. You'd probably get the best out of this app if doing the accompanying course - which in all fairness is how it's described. But as a stand alone app it's really helping me with the pronunciation, love how you can record yourself and compare, go back and try again until you get it. Great for iPhone as the units are short and can be done over coffee break - or on the train if you don't mind the looks of other passengers! I thought twice about buying it as it's not cheap but I am really pleased and can't wait to surprise my Welsh-speaking grandchildren when I next phone them.
