A simple form that will let you say what you, or anyone else, is doing, has done, or is going to do, including the negative and question forms. The book is broken down into six chapters, each taking around 10 minutes to complete and revise. Each chapter has exercises, together with answers at the back of the book. 'Simple Welsh in an Hour of Your Time' is written by professional Welsh-to-adults tutor Colin Jones, author of the epic home-study Welsh course 'Cadw Swn'.
