2010 News

December 31, 2010

First of all, a happy New Year to the 10,000 of you who have downloaded Welsh Lessons!

When I first wrote it, I thought a couple of hundred people might be interested in learning some Welsh phrases on an iPod – I never expected the kind of numbers there have been.

The experience has led to Neil Taylor and myself working with CBAC (aka the WJEC in my day…) to make a companion App for their Cwrs Mynediad Welsh Learning course. That came out in August this year, and has taken much of the time and effort  that I might have spent on “Welsh Lessons”. However, if you really want to learn Welsh, I’m convinced that “Cwrs Mynediad” is the way to go. Check the link from within Welsh Lessons.

I have managed to bring out a couple of updates in 2010, including v1.5 which restored the ability to run on older iPhone devices.

Blwyddyn newydd dda to all Welsh Lesson learners.


1.5 is in the approval process

December 1, 2010

I forgot to post here when I released 1.4 in August – it added two more chapters, plus other phrases such as Merry Christmas.

Major drawback was that it also stopped “Welsh Lessons” from working on early devices (iPod Touch first gen). I have just released 1.5, having finally figured out how to make it work on old versions of IOS.

I also added a link to, which is a new comprehensive iPhone App Welsh beginners textbook based on the Adult Learners material from CBAC.
