Sound clips

You can provide bilingual services to the public if you are a fluent Welsh speaker or not. Here is a series of sound clips which will help you to pronounce words, terms and phrases that you might be unsure of. Whether you need to check some pronunciations for occasional use, or if you are looking for help to include more Welsh terminology in your dealings with the public or with colleagues generally, we can help.

If you use these audio clips in your day to day work, you will know that you are responding correctly to Welsh medium enquiries and you will be able to work increasingly through the medium of Welsh on the Council’s behalf.
