3 Excuses to give up Learning Welsh is a book is for adult learners of the Welsh language and looks at three linguistic eccentricities of the language. These three things are hallmarks of the Welsh language that learners have told me they find most frustrating about learning Welsh. They are three aspects of the language that could be used as legitimate excuses for packing in the whole language learning endeavour altogether.

The book uses accessible grammatical explanations to tackle the following things you feel you’ll never master:

  • the mutations
  • saying “yes” and “no”
  • the verb “to be”

You don’t need to be a grammarian or a polyglot to read this book. You don’t need to know what the imperfect subjunctive is. You don’t need to have a degree in Linguistics. You’ve got everything you need already: an interest in Welsh, a brain and this book.

Contains a grammatical glossary and short exercises.
