Welsh in a Week

Monday 26th - Sunday 1st September

Come with little or no knowledge of the Welsh language – just a desire to learn and by the end of the week, a basic ability in Welsh will have been achieved. The course tutor is Julie Brake, Senior Lecturer in Welsh at Glyndwr University.

Julie has taught Welsh for Adults for a number of years for the Department of Extra-Mural Studies at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth before joining the Welsh Department of the University of Wales, Lampeter where she taught Welsh, Welsh history and Welsh literature.

Whilst at Lampeter she became interested in online learning and was eventually appointed Director of the E-learning Centre. She left Lampeter to head Welsh for Adults within the Department of Education, Ceredigion County Council before joining Glyndwr University in 2007. Julie’s research interests include second language acquisition, comparative linguistics and the use of technology to support language learning. This has led her to produce a wide range of online and text-based materials for learners and other publications related to Welsh culture.

The inclusive course fee (£510 - £570) covers morning coffee, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner, bed and breakfast. Non-residential prices, Clergy and Student discounts are available on request.
