Dysgu Cymraeg Yn Albany
Come Learn Welsh In Albany



Cymdeithas Madog invites you to join us for Cwrs y Seintiau - The Saints' Course - our 41st annual Cwrs Cymraeg at Siena College in Albany, New York, July 16-23, 2017! Albany is within driving distance of New York City, Boston, Montreal, and the Adirondacks, to name a few. The area is also steeped in Colonial and Revolutionary War history. Registration opens this fall! So join old friends and make new ones in our week long Welsh Course for beginners and accomplished users of the language alike. We will also hold cultural activities in the evenings such as folk dancing, a quiz and pub sing-a-long, a Welsh film, and a talent night or the famous Welsh "noson lawen" and Eisteddfod. An optional course trip at mid-week will take us to surrounding sites of interest. We hope you will join us.

Cwrs Cymraeg (which simply means "Welsh Course") emphasizes the spoken language, with classroom instruction at various levels ranging from absolute beginners to quite advanced. The teaching staff of experienced Welsh-speaking instructors is brought from Wales and North America. There are approximately 5 hours of language class each day, supplemented by further language and culture-related activities in the afternoon. Evening events such as singing, folk dancing, Welsh-language films, and a Noson Lawen (talent night) provide additional opportunities to relax while enjoying a Welsh-language atmosphere.

Mid-Week Field Trip

Cwrs Cymraeg 2017 will include an optional field trip to New York State Museum and Empire State Plaza. We will leave after lunch on Wednesday and travel a short distance to the Empire State Plaza, the hub of the Capital and the Capitol. Individuals will have the opportunity to go to the Corning Tower Observation Deck. At 42 stories, the Corning Tower is the highest skyscraper between NYC and Montreal. It's named for Erastus Corning II, who was mayor of Albany for more than 40 years, and is covered in glass and Vermont pearl marble.

The Tower on the Empire State Plaza began in 1965. At the cost of nearly 1 billion 1960's dollars, it was at the time one of the most expensive state's works projects in the country. It contains government offices as well as art space, both indoor and out, restaurants, and is home to the Egg, a one-of-kind performing arts space. The Plaza links the capitol with the State Museum. People can choose to tour the capitol and/or the State Museum."
