Duolingo has shared a list of phrases for love birds who are dating on St Dwynwen’s Day today.

The language learning app company says it wants to help couples new and old set the scene for a romantic evening.

It has put together a guide of Welsh words and phrases people can use on a date on Dydd Santes Dwynwen (January 25).

The company said: “Whether it’s to impress a partner new or old, they’ll soon be swooning at these Welsh phrases!”

Welsh is an extremely popular language on Duolingo – a free app that makes language learning easy and accessible to everyone.

The language first launched on the platform in 2016 and by 2019, it was the fastest growing language in the UK – up 44% ahead of Hindi, Japanese and French.

The phrases are:
