Informal Learning
If you are learning Welsh, Glamorgan Welsh for Adults are there to support you, they have lots of opportunities for you to use your Welsh outside a classroom enviroment within the Glamorgan area.

You can start slowly if you want, by going with your tutor to an event for learners. You could then join a Welsh Reading Club maybe, or go to a Coffee Morning. As you become more confident, you could then maybe join fluent speakers at a Welsh Society, or at Welsh events. There’s plenty of choice. It’s up to you!

If you’d like so start an event of your own – get in touch!
Contact Ifan Dylan for more information at

Please click on the link below to see their social calendar of activities.

If you live or work in Rhondda Cynon Taf, Bridgend or Merthyr Tydfil and want to learn or improve your Welsh, we can help.

We have courses available at all levels throughout the area – courses which meet once, twice or three times a week in the day or evening.
