BBC Catchphrase Lessons 19-24

These audio lessons make up the fourth set of 6 lessons in the BBC's "Catchphrase" course for learning Welsh. You have probably figured out how this works by now.

The fourth set of six lessons covers the following:

  1. Was and were
  2. More about was and were
  3. Jobs
  4. Needing to do things
  5. Faces, noses, hair and ears
  6. Did you see the film?

For the lessons which have them (which unfortunately isn't all of them), you can use the BBC's course notes by clicking on the appropriate .rtf links. You'll need some office program like LibreOffice to use these, but you can then convert them to txt or html if you wish. Just watch out for the þ and ð characters which may try to confuse you.


Gwers pedwararbymtheg - Lesson 19

Yes, really "pedwararbymtheg" (four on top of fifteen) instead of "un deg naw".

Gwers ugain - Lesson 20
