What is level 1?

Having level 1 Welsh skills means that you can pronounce Welsh forenames and place names, some police-related vocabulary, and can understand and say basic greetings and phrases.

If you’re offered a position with us that requires level 1 Welsh then we’ll invite you to attend a 10 minute phone assessment.  Download the test paper or have this open in front of you before we call you to conduct the assessment.

The downloads below will help you prepare for the test.

Dialogue tracks are included to help you learn by hearing the key phrases in context. Please note, you will not be expected to hold conversations like these as part of the assessment.
