Second language pathway

Astudio Cymraeg ym Mhrifysgol Caerdydd

We welcome second language students and provide additional support during their studies to help develop their fluency and their confidence in Welsh.

During the first year, second language route students follow between four and six modules in Welsh which focus on:

  • literature
  • Welsh culture
  • developing communication skills
  • research

The first language and second language route students come together in the second year and third year to follow the same modules.

For the second language route, the ‘Advanced Academic Skills’ module is provided in the second year, which enables students to continue to develop confidence and fluency in using the language orally, in writing, and in an academic context.

The School of Welsh helped me significantly during my studies. To tell the truth, all of the staff were a huge support to me and my fellow second language students. Conversational classes and individual sessions were held to strengthen our language skills and develop our confidence in preparation for life outside of the class room.
