Book Description

The Routledge Intermediate Welsh Reader is a comprehensive reader designed to provide varied, stimulating and up-to-date reading material for learners of Welsh at the intermediate level.

The Welsh Reader provides a bridge between basic literacy skills and the ability to read full novels and newspapers in Welsh. It consists of thirty-five authentic readings, graded on the basis of complexity of vocabulary, grammar and syntax. These readings are drawn from a range of contemporary sources such as newspapers and magazines as well as novels and historical works.

It is ideal for learners who already possess a knowledge of essential grammar and vocabulary and who wish to expand their knowledge of the language through contextualized reading material.

Key features include:

  • extracts of modern literature and newspaper/magazine articles
  • vocabulary lists for quick reference
  • short grammar explanations of any complicated structures
  • initial consonant mutations marked typographically
  • comprehension and discussion questions
  • full answer key

Suitable for both class use and independent study, The Routledge Intermediate Welsh Reader is an essential tool for facilitating vocabulary learning and increasing reading proficiency.
