Welsh Language

Language Courses from the Virtual College

The Virtual College have teamed up with learndirect to offer a range of Languages at Beginners level that can be studied online from your home, office or anywhere in the world with wifi or an internet connection!

Our language courses aren't formally assessed, but there are many exercises and quizzes that you can do as often as you like to practise your language skills and test your knowledge. The language courses aren't linked to a qualification, but you'll get a statement of completion when you've achieved a certain score in your exercises and quizzes.

Please click here for more information on these courses.

Welsh is an absorbing language with a rich heritage, dating back around 4,000 years in the UK. It has more than 500,000 speakers. All children in schools in Wales either speak or learn Welsh so it's a language of the future. Welsh is growing as a business language because all public sector organisations in Wales must legally provide services bilingually. Many private companies are following that pattern too, so speaking Welsh could boost your job prospects.

In order to take part in a language course you will require speakers or headphones as well as a microphone.

A free sample of our Beginners Welsh course can be found by clicking here.

It is assumed that beginners will start on 'Talk Now: Welsh' and progress through all four courses and those will greater experience will either start on 'Talk the Talk: Welsh' or 'Business Talk Welsh'.
