Welsh for Beginners

I am presently holidaying in North Wales. In fact I've been here for a week already. I am slowly learning Welsh.

Ysgol = School
Slow = Araf
Hen Golwyn = Old Colwyn
Dim Palmant = No Footpath
Rhybudd Talu Cosb = Penalty Charge Notice

That last one has cost me £35 to learn. And there weren't any Dim Parcio signs to be seen!


  • That made me laugh a bit, I am Welsh but when I was growing up there we saw no signage other than in English, Welsh was not tolerated.

    The colloquial Welsh for Microwave is Popty Ping.

    I note, also, that your post was published on my birthday.
