New news website launched for Welsh language learners at Urdd Eisteddfod
A new news website for Welsh language learners has been launched at the Urdd Eisteddfod youth festival.
New Lingo360 The news website is part of the Golwg360 news network, but will provide an online space to provide news and articles specifically aimed at learners or those with less confidence in reading written Welsh.
It offers an online edition of the bimonthly magazine Lingo Newydd which has been offering news, articles and advice to learners in print form for a few decades.
“It has been evident for some time that there is an increased demand for content for learners, and so we are very pleased to introduce the brand new Lingo360 website, which will play a central role in the company’s offering, especially on weekends,” said Alun Rhys Chivers, Editor-in-Chief of golwg360.
“Our intention as we introduce the Lingo360 is to help less confident Welsh learners and Welsh speakers on their journey to fluency, with vocabulary to help them read ‘News of the Week’ and a variety of feature articles.
“I hope there will be something interesting for everyone.”
In addition to news articles, the website will include various additional features and quizzes that will give people the opportunity to practice their language skills.
But Alun Rhys Chivers stressed that Lingo360 is not just for learners, but will be an important resource for those returning to the Welsh language after a long period of not using the language, or those who don’t feel completely confident read items in Welsh.
