Welsh Language Apps

0 12 Jul 18

Splinter recently launched 2 Welsh second language apps to promote and encourage learners to engage with the Welsh language. The games are designed for teachers and pupils of Primary and Secondary schools.

As a preferred supplier of digital design services to The Welsh Government’s, Welsh in Education Resources Branch, we were pleased to have been invited and won the competitive pitch.

Crucial insight was gained regarding design and gameplay by holding fun workshops with the teachers and pupils from: Ysgol Maelgwn, Llandudno Junction, Woodlands Community Primary School, Cwmbrân and Trowbridge Primary School, Cardiff, Ysgol John Bright, Llandudno, Cardinal Newman, Pontypridd and Eastern High, Cardiff. A massive THANK YOU to all.

The games imaginatively illustrated whimsical characters are based on Welsh legends: Guto Nyth Brân, a legendary 18th century athlete from the Pontypridd area and Dreigiau Dinas Emrys about Gwrtheyrn, the 5th century king of the Celtic Britons and the antics of two dragons underground at Dinas Emrys.

Our thanks also go to: The Welsh Government’s Welsh in Education Resources Branch, content author Elin Alaw, Welsh language specialists Janine Venables and Jo Knell, voice over actor Llŷr Ifans.

To download the apps please go to the micro site.
