Our courses give people the opportunity to practice each language skill – speaking, reading, listening and writing – but particular emphasis is placed on building your confidence to speak the language by encouraging you to practice your Welsh as much as possible during your stay at Nant.

Our experienced tutors adjust the course content slightly in accordance with the group’s needs. You will never be in a class of more than 14 people so you’re sure to get plenty of personal encouragement and attention.

Please contact us on 01758 750334 if you have any other questions.

Advantages of learning Welsh…

By learning the language, which is spoken by over 700,000 people worldwide, you open the door to many opportunities and new experiences. Those of you who have already started learning Welsh are aware of the benefits of being able to understand and pronounce the language around you. You’ll have twice the choice of entertainment, with TV, radio and websites available for speakers of the language, and, ultimately, a wide range of literature spanning centuries.

People learn Welsh for many different reasons: for work, for family, to feel part of the community, to name a few. But, whatever your reason for learning the language, the process should be enjoyable and one that gives you great satisfaction.

Lessons

Usually, the Welsh lessons are held in the ‘Plas’, the former home of the manager of the quarry. The rooms are furnished with the latest equipment to enable us to offer a variety of learning methods, including traditional methods. Weather permitting, we aim to carry out some activities outside the classroom, enabling us to make the most out of the natural resources around the site.

Accommodation

Students who attend our residential Welsh courses stay at the old quarrymen’s cottages which have been upgraded to a 5* group accommodation standard. Every room is furnished with oak furniture that is hand made in Wales and a traditional Welsh blanket on every bed. We have rooms suitable for wheelchairs.
