Basic Welsh Skills – how to prepare for interview
CCW has a bilingual policy and we encourage
our staff to develop their Welsh skills, both speaking and writing.
As a public organisation, all our staff need to be able to
pronounce Welsh correctly and to use basic greetings and phrases in
Welsh when dealing with the public.
The following is a selection of Welsh place names and phrases
that will be used to test the pronunciation skills of applicants at
interview. The place names may vary, but the basic phrases will be
taken from the list below.
You will be given a list during the interview and will be asked
to say selected names and phrases.
- Cyngor Cefn Gwlad Cymru
- Maes y Ffynnon
- Betws y Coed
- Craig y Cilau
- Mynydd Du
|Diolch yn fawr
For help with pronunciation skills you are welcome to contact
the Welsh Language Unit (Norah Wyn Williams e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
A CD is available on request from CCW ‘Introduction to the Welsh
If the post that you are being interviewed for requires a higher
than basic level of Welsh, you may be asked further questions by
the panel to test your ability at that level.
