Learning Welsh - July 28th 2015, 06:29 PM

I want to take part in a Welsh course that starts in September. I've had a look and found one that's suitable. I'm a beginner, and I'll have other committments, so the only one suitable is wlplan entry level over either 15 or 16 weeks.

I could do it online, but I'd have to be available between 5 and 6pm every tuesday, which I can't guarantee because I don't know my uni timetable yet.

It costs £86 but I think I can get it for £55 because I don't have a job.

I can't make up my mind whether it's worth it or not.

Cons: the cost, the time commitment, the fact I'll be studying uni as well.

Pros: I need to learn Welsh to improve my employability because I live in North Wales, I love learning languages anyway, and I'm a linguistics student so any language learning is a benefit to me.

I think I will do it, but I wanted to ask people's opinions.

It won't be quiet, it won't be safe, and it won't be calm. But I'll tell you what it will be: The trip of a lifetime!

You have my full attention...but I may be slightly biased

If you're going to stay in North Wales (or move to Patagonia), then it would definitely be beneficial! It's not much use down South, but the teachers always promoted Welsh here as having a second language is supposed to be an advantage, but I'm not sure how true that is.

I think the main concern would be time and commitment. University can get pretty busy, so you'd have to make sure that you have time to do the Welsh course as well as all your other assignments, and having time for yourself. Is it possible to talk to someone about the Welsh course and see what's involved and roughly how much time should be spent on it? If it doesn't look possible, maybe you could start the course towards the end of the university year, when you may have more free time available?

Take care
