Maes D

Maes D is the centre for learning Welsh on the Maes and the place to come for information about the language.

The Eisteddfod is a wonderful place if you’re learning Welsh or considering learning the language.  Experience the culture of Wales and the language in a unique atmosphere for a whole week, and it’s a chance to practise your Welsh all day every day!  There’s a warm welcome for learners at every activity on the Maes.

Maes D – Welsh learners Tent.  This is where learners from all parts of Wales - and beyond – come together to socialise, compete, share experiences, enjoy the company of Welsh speakers, and most of all, to have fun.  It’s the perfect place for people to use their Welsh over a cuppa, and there’s lots going on throughout the week.

There are plenty of competitions for Welsh learners at the Eisteddfod, and competing can be lots of fun.  Why not give it a go next year?

The Learners’ section’s main competition is the Welsh Learner of the Year competition, and this is one of the Eisteddfod’s major awards.

Maes D is organised by the Eisteddfod.

The project is supported by Boom Cymru and the Welsh Government.
