Places 1 is the tenth (assuming read left to right) skill of the language tree for Welsh, and it has two lessons. This skill teaches some place names in Welsh.

Culture NotesEdit

Welsh towns will often have two names; one is the traditional Welsh name and the other is the English one (which is often just a translation or corruption of the Welsh one). The town council of each town will decide which one will be used and whether signage or documents will show either one or both.

Due to a viral video, one the most well known Welsh town names is Llanfair­pwllgwyngyll­gogery­chwyrn­drobwll­llan­tysilio­gogo­goch, which is the second largest place name on the world.
