This book was developed from Howard Welsh language learning notes and the self-study research he undertook into the Welsh language when he was learning it. He devoted his time and money to improve his Welsh for professional development.
Howard wrote it for Welsh Adult learners, English speakers, not Welsh tutors, especially all those thousand of learners who have tried and failed to learn Welsh in Wales. The only publication that I am aware even referst to the difficulties that learners encounter learning Welsh was by Colin Miles, who was chemist. I offer pragmatic solutions to them.
