The aim of this book is to teach you to understand and speak Welsh as it is spoken today. In order to achieve this, the language introduced is centred on a wide range of realistic, everyday situations. The course covers the four basic skills - listening and speaking, reading and writing, with recorded material to accompany your work and provide you with the essential opportunity to listen to native speakers and speak it yourself. Key structures and vocabulary are introduced in 21 thematic units preceded by an alphabet and pronunciation guide, a mutation chart for quick reference and a map of Wales.
