Welsh flag Welsh language discussion list

WELSH-L Web site

The list WELSH-L is for discussions in the Welsh language (or the related languages Breton and Cornish). There are occasional postings in English which discuss learners' questions or Welsh grammar questions. WELSH-L is also a good resource for intermediate or advanced learners of Welsh, who may find that following the list improves their language skills.

If you are just beginning to learn Welsh, you would probably prefer the list Cymraeg-L, which is for beginners and contains a lot of English (with a glossary or translation for each Welsh posting).

Other Internet resources on Welsh language and culture are listed below.
