Dafydd Morse (italki)

Introduction to Welsh

Do you know that the language Welsh is one of the oldest languages in Europe–potentially up to 4000 years old? Originated from the Celtic language, it came to Britain around 600BC. Centuries of history formed and seasoned the Welsh language and its unique culture. For instance, the world famous Eisteddfod is a festival of Welsh literature, music and performance that dates back to at least the 12th century. Born and raised Welsh, Dafidd, here, will give you a full immersion of Welsh culture from its language, cuisine, poetry, music, sports etc. So, are you ready to be Welsh in just 45 minutes?
