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. If you are working on your own, the accompanying recorded material is important as it will provide you with the essential opportunity to listen to Welsh spoken by native speakers and to speak it yourself within a controlled framework. The coursebook contains 21 thematic units, which are preceded by an alphabet and pronunciation guide, a 'mutation chart' to show the nine letters in Welsh which are subject to change at the beginning of words, and a map of Wales. A more detailed reference section, the key to the exercises, a Welsh-English vocabulary and an English-Welsh vocabulary are included in the back of the book. There are two accompanying CDs and cassettes which are available separately or with the book in a pack. "Teach Yourself Welsh" is the official coursebook for the Welsh Distance Learning Course of the University of Wales, Lampeter.
