Homes with Welsh Speaking Owners

Nothing makes you feel more away from it all than visiting a country where the people speak a different language. You can get visions of travelling far and wide out of your head though, Wales is just across the border and with Welsh spoken widely you can truly immerse yourself in a different culture. 

Welsh is spoken widely throughout the country and is the first language in many parts of the north and west. National TV and radio stations broadcast in Welsh, road signs are written in Welsh and English, there are Welsh-medium schools, books, magazines newspapers and websites. It’s called Cymraeg in Welsh and it’s a language with entirely regular and phonetic spelling. Although you wouldn’t necessarily know it to look at a word like Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (go on, have a go!). But most other Welsh words are a lot shorter and once you know the rules, you can learn to read and pronounce Welsh fairly easily.

To get you started, here are some simple words and phrases:    

  • Bore da (Pronounced: Boh-reh dah) - Good morning    
  • Prynhawn da (Prin-hown dah -  Good afternoon    
  • Nos da (nohs dah) - Good night    
  • Croeso i Gymru (Croysoh ee Gum-ree) - Welcome to Wales
  • Iechyd da! (Yeh-chid dah) - Cheers!    
  • Tafarn (Tav-arn) - Pub    
  • Diolch (Dee-olch) - Thanks    
  • Da iawn (Dah yahwn) - Very good
