Golingo is helping thousands of people start speaking Welsh in everyday life. A group of Welsh language experts have thrown their weight behind Golingo in a bid to get more people speaking the language.

Golingo’s app immerses learners in bite-size conversations around a virtual town that mimics real-life. The town is filled with shops, bars and restaurants where learners can practise ordering dinner, buying… Read more

Nothing out there allowed… Read more

I… Read more
