Am Ddiwrnod! Gan Margaret Johnson

Am Ddiwrnod! is one book in a series called Cyfres Amdani that’s been written especially for Welsh learners, if you’d like more information about this series click the link here

This book has been written for anyone who is doing entry level (Mynediad) it’s written specifically to reflect what’s been taught at that level.

This is my first review for a book in Welsh, if you’d like to see more please comment so I know to continue with this idea. (I’m writing in English though).

Am Ddiwrnod: Nofel i Ddysgwyr Lefel Mynediad

This book is about 32 pages long. There are a few pictures and there’s some information about the characters and where the story is set at the beginning. There are definitions of some words at the bottom of the page. It’s a very short story and I finished it rather quickly.

I enjoyed the story, it had drama and humour and kept my interest. I’d definitely recommend it, I found it fairly easy to follow. I looked up the odd word that I wasn’t sure of and did refer to the definitions at the bottom of the page. I found it really helpful that some of the words were repeated, you might forget the meaning of a word if you only see it once or twice but the repetition helped me to remember the word.

This is the first time I’ve read a book from this Cyfres Amdani series, and so far I am happy with it. It’s very short which is great because I could read in one sitting. I’m not learning Welsh in a classroom so I’m unsure what my level is, probably close to intermediate (Say Something In Welsh level 3?).

I’d definitely recommend this book if you want to start reading books in cymraeg, it’s a good start, learn a few new words and build your confidence.

I’ve tried reading a few other books which I didn’t finish due to finding them difficult and being frustrated at having to look up every other word. So I am so happy to finally finish something in cymraeg!

If you found this review useful and would like me to review more books yn gymraeg (or any other Welsh language related posts) please drop me a line in the comments so I know to keep reviewing books in Welsh.

Don’t be shy, say shw mae 🙂

Pob lwc a dal ati!
