Although Welsh pronunciation may seem difficult at first, the truth is Welsh is quite phonetic. Once you master the sounds of the alphabet, diphthongs and those rrrrolling r’s you will be on your way to becoming fluent.

Here, we have a video series, looking at Welsh pronunciation in detail. It covers the north and south Wales dialects. You can watch the videos as many times as you wish, until you feel confident enough to say Llanfairpwllgwngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllsantysyliogogogoch in your sleep ;-)
