A Quick Guide to Welsh for the Saes


Here's a very quick guide to some simple Welsh phrases we want everyone to try and use throughout Rali Cymru!

(If you're viewing this page on mobile, the table below can scroll sideways)



(No) thanks! (Dim) diolch! (dim) dee-olch
Is everybody happy? Rwyt t'in happus iawn? Roy-t teen hap-pus y-aw-n
Good morning/afternoon/night! Bore / Prynhawn / Nos Da! Borreh / prin-how-n / nos dah
Welcome! Croeso Croy-soh ("so" like in sock)
Hello (similar to " 'aight") Shwmae! Shuh-my
Cheers! (lit. Good health) Iechyd da! Ye-ch-id dah
Goodbye Hwyl fawr Hoil (like boil)  vour (like hour)



*remember: in Welsh, a "ch" is pronounced with the back of your throat, like in Loch Ness. "r"s are rolled, and "o"s are pronounced like the o in hello. Please look up how to pronounce "ll" before trying...


And finally,  please  do not disrespect the Welsh language. There's a long history of the English disrespecting the Welsh language and culture, and we don't want to give SSAGO a bad name!
