Northern Dialect: Does anyone know a good place online (or on CD) to learn Welsh in the northern dialect? My family is from Anglesey, and I'd rather learn Welsh the way they speak it. It seems that all of the teaching tools I find are southern.

http://www.menai.ac.uk/clicclic/ - this site is a good place to start, actually I think that is one of the only sites Iíve seen that has lessons in north Welsh.

Sorry I cant be of more help.

The BBC was some lessons in North Welsh, you'll have to search for it though.

cymdeithas madog: hi,
there's a group called cymdeithas madog, which holds a Welsh intensive language course every summer, mostly in North America (next year it will be in California)-it's the most jam-packed, exhausting, rewarding week you'll ever have in your life...many of the teachers are from N. Wales, and all are careful to include the N. Walean version of things if one asks! the website is www.cymdeithasmadog.org I believe.

What is the difference between North and South?

The Northern and southern dialects vary e.g milk is llaeth (south) and llefrith (north). However most welsh speakers understand the variations. There are many dialects which vary from one area to another, not just south/north.
I hope this answeres your question. Diolch.

The Colin and Cumberland page on the BBC has a choice between north Wales and south Wales.
