Summary

Croeso i Gwm Gwrachod, cwm bach diniwed yn y De. Welcome to Witches' Valley, an innocent little valley in the South.

Written by the author of the best-selling Welsh learners' novel Coed y Brenin, this book should help you expand and improve your Welsh, while being both interesting and entertaining. It should be suitable for those who've done a year or more of evening classes, although we'd hope that more advanced learners would also get a lot out of it.

The events, people and places in Cwm Gwrachod are imaginary, in that they exist only in my mind. The funny thing is that as you listen to this book they will exist in your mind too, but entirely through the medium of Welsh.

Please note: This audiobook is in Welsh.

Excellent resource for learners

The narration is very measured and precise, taking the listener through some useful vocabulary and basic grammar. The story is also quite engaging- not Harry Potter, but a welcome change from the contrived scenarios typical of a Welsh textbook.

Great beginning Welsh book

Be sure to order the paperback as well, and read along while listening. Excellent alone during your commute. There's a sequel as well. This pairs well with DuoLingo. One day I hope to graduate to Harry Potter in Welsh, but this book is a good first step.
