Dal Ati (Go for it). S4C launches new programmes in Welsh for learners

S4C (Sianel Pedwar Cymru) is a Welsh language public-service television broadcaster in Wales. It is aimed at a specifically Welsh speaking audience. At the Welsh National Eisteddfod, which is taking place this week, it has announced new programmes aimed at learners of the Welsh language and those seeking to improve their language skills. The title of the programmes will be Dal Ati (Go for it) and will start being broadcast from September 28.

S4C was responding to research that asked learners of Welsh and those wanting to gain more confidence in the language what they wanted to see. The new weekly two hour service will broadcast about a variety of topics in simple-to-understand informal Welsh. At the same time an app, website and digital service will support the on-line content. The broadcaster hope that this will encourage people to gain confidence in speaking Welsh and the title Dal Ati (Go for it) is to get learners to practice the language more. It is also seen as a way for those who are confident Welsh speakers to help and support learners of the language.
