On-Line and Apps

APPS                                                                                                                               An increasing number of Apps for Smart phones and Apple platforms are available. (See  http://cymraeg.gov.wales/apps?tab=apps&lang=en)

We use in class the North Wales version of the WJEC’s Cwrs Mynediad for beginners and, since June 2015, an Ap version of  this is available free and for nothing:   https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/learn-cymraeg-gogledd-mynediad/id925122397?mt=8

Say Something in Welsh  (available via computer and Ap)
This is both popular and successful in helping people speak Welsh and is well worth trying out. The first 26 lesson downloads are free.

S4C (The Welsh TV Channel)
Both Bore Da and Dal Ati  http://www.s4c.co.uk/cy/adloniant/dal-ati/
are specifically for learners and broadcast Sunday a.m. 10.30 – 12.30 and streamable for 35 days afterwards from http://www.s4c.co.uk/clic/e_index.shtml .
It’s still worth looking at the website of Hwb the previous S4C series for learners           http://hwb.s4c.co.uk/                                                                                                                          and on YouTube,
http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=youtube+hwb&qpvt=You+Tube+Hwb&FORM=VDRE#view=detail&mid=76D4DBE4ECA9FAFB079576D4DBE4ECA9FAFB0795
Almost all S4C programmes are available with English subtitles. Programme schedules are listed here http://www.s4c.cymru/c_listings.shtml
View them live via satellite or cable, or for 35 days after via your computer at http://www.s4c.co.uk/clic/e_index.shtml
or, for just 7 days after and without subtitles, through BBC iPlayer on your TV
