Want To Learn Welsh?

Over the last 40 years Lifelong Learning at Bangor University has developed a structured and effective programme for adult learners of Welsh. Tens of thousands of students have benefited from the combination of carefully graded courses, highly experienced and committed tutors and first class back-up services.

Courses are available daytime and evening.

Some of our courses have crèche facilities.

We offer a wide range of classes providing the learner with a clear progression route from one level to the next:

Cwrs Wlpan (Beginners)
SuperWlpan (Beginners)
Cwrs Canol-Wlpan (Foundation)
Cwrs Pellach (Intermediate)
Pellach Trwy’r Post (Distance Learning Course)
Uwch (Higher)
Meistroli (Advanced)
Meistroli Trwy’r Post (Distance Learning Course)
Courses for Fluent Learners (Welsh-medium courses)

These stages correspond to the five new national levels for the Welsh for Adults programme:

Entry: Wlpan
Foundation: Canol-Wlpan
Intermediate: Pellach
Higher: Uwch and Meistroli
Proficiency: Fluent Learners
The SuperWlpan will take students through Entry, Foundation and Intermediate levels in 10 months.

We also offer multi-level courses:

One day schools offered at various times of the year across north Wales
Summer and New Year Schools
New to our range of courses is a confidence-building course. This is aimed at those who have been brought up in the area and/or studied Welsh at school, who understand spoken Welsh with ease, but don’t have the confidence to speak the language themselves.

Courses start towards the end of September, with some additional beginners’ courses in January.

A course brochure is usually available in June where you can find the nearest course to you. If you would like to receive this brochure through the post, please contact us today!

If you would like some advice or guidance as to the most appropriate level for you, call us on 01248 382752 or email us at

Lifelong Learning offers Welsh for Adults provision on behalf of the North Wales Welsh for Adults Centre.
