Learners of Welsh now have the chance to drill those tricky verb forms, with the release of Welsh Verb Blitz for Android!
Combining reference and drill tools, Welsh Verb Blitz is a great way to memorise some of the key periphrastic and declined forms of over 80 colloquial Welsh verbs. Users can even switch between North and South Wales varieties, as there are some key differences between the two – for instance, the North’s preference for o (‘he’) instead of e.
The verbs in the app, as always, represent some of the most commonly used words in the Welsh language, making Welsh Verb Blitz a great vocabulary builder / consolidator too.
Welsh Verb Blitz for Android is free from the Google Player Store at this link! Happy learning!
Learners of Welsh will no doubt have scratched their heads at some point over the traditional version of the language’s two counting systems, the vigesimal system.
The vigesimal system of counting is based on the number 20, and while Welsh is not unique in this – French and Danish also use a base of 20 for some numbers – it is different enough from the decimal system to cause some anguish for learners! Although it now coexists with a much more familiar, decimal system of counting in modern Welsh, it is still considered an important part of the language, and still used for things like ages, dates and times.
Now, Android users can download our free Number Whizz app to learn and practise these tricky numbers on the go! Featuring presentations, number games and the ultra-handy Number Writer, it’s a great way to give your brain a Welsh workout.
Welsh Number Whizz is available at Google Play from this link.
Pob lwc and happy learning!
