The #Welsh Alphabet #12
Here's a few videos to check your pronunciation and see how close you got. Remember, Welsh, like any other language, has regional differences in pronunciation.

The #Welsh Alphabet #11
llan sounds like clan
fair sounds like fire with a v
pwll is pooll with the ll sound
gwyn is gwin
gyll is gill like fish gill but with the ll sound
goger is go geh
y chwyrn = uh ch ooey urn, like quuer with an n at the end - queern
drobwll is dro bwll like pwll above but b
llan - clan
ty silio - tih silly oh
go - go
go - go
goch like loch.
So now you can pronounce the longest place name in Wales!
