LATEST CROSSWORD: CYMRAEG VOCABULARY CROSSWORD 4 - GOING SHOPPING
AmeriCymru is committed to doing everything it can to assist its members and readers to acquire a working knowledge of the Welsh language. Whether your goal is fluency or merely the ability to order a pizza and beer when on vacation in Caernarfon you will find helpful resources on this site.
Of course if your real goal is complete mastery of the language then you will need to be able to practice with other speakers and learners. To that end we provide a fully featured language course which runs all year round and caters for absolute beginners, intermediate and advanced speakers. For more information about the course go here:- AmeriCymraeg
But what if you are not yet ready to commit to a full time course and would like to get a feel for the language and accumulate some vocabulary first?
In that case you might wish to make use of our Welsh language learners crosswords and the accompanying Geiriadur (dictionary) section which we are currently developing on the site.
Our crosswords can be found here:- Cymraeg Vocabulary Crosswords
The 'Geiriadur' pages are currently under construction but we intend to make rapid progress and we hope you will keep checking back. We hope to add a new vocabulary crossword every week and the solutions to all clues will be found on these pages (just click on Nouns , Verbs , Adjectives or Other to look up the answers). As we develop this resource we will be adding further sections to the menu at the top of this page and suggesting ways in which the Geriadur might be used to develop a command of basic conversational Welsh vocabulary.
This section will grow to include 20 crosswords. We plan to add one a week. Once the series is complete the 'Geiriadur' will comprise 500 entries approx. It is intended primarily to help people expand their Welsh vocabulary. When you consider that fluency in any language normally requires a vocabulary of around 2000 words, this resource will get you off to a good start. At a later date we will add some basic grammar sections as well.

Latest BlogsSearching for Songs Hi my name is Chris Jones, I'm a traditional folk singer and musician from Wales.
