How do I pay for my course?

It's possible to pay for your course online, through the website learnwelsh.cymru

Is it possible to learn Intermediate, Advanced levels etc on a faster pace as well?

Yes, twice or more a week courses are available on all levels. As with Entry, the more time you can committ to learning every week, the faster you will learn.

When do you offer the Taster Courses?

The Taster Courses run many times throughout the year, in different locations around Cardiff. They usually run just before an Entry course starts.

There are different courses to choose from on every level – how do I choose the best one for me?

The first question to ask yourself is how many hours you can commit to learning every week. The more you can commit, the better, because you will get fluent in a much shorter period of time. On every level you have an option to study once a week (usually 2 hours) and then some faster options which mean attending a class twice a week, four times a week or block courses which are courses held between 9.30 and 4.30 every day for a fortnight. There's also a blended course available which means that you're able to attend a class once a week and study the rest of the course online in the comfort of your own home. There are lots of options for you and you're very welcome to contact us in the Centre on 029 20 874 710 if you would like to discuss them further.
