Duolingo, the language learning app, has launched a guide filled with iconic WWE words and phrases alongside their Welsh translations ahead of next month’s WWE stadium event, Clash at the Castle, emanating from Cardiff, Wales, on September 3rd.
The guide includes WWE idioms, nicknames, and well-known signature Superstar moves. Fans can learn words such as ‘Gornest’, which means ‘match’; ‘Symudiad Olaf’, which translates to ‘finisher’, the term for the deciding move that wins a Superstar the match, and other tongue twisters such as ‘Cerddoriaeth Cyflwyno’ which translates to ‘entrance music’, the track a Superstar enters the ring to which helps to showcase their personality.
The guide encourages fans to fully immerse themselves in the culture and heritage of Wales in the lead up to Clash at the Castle – WWE’s first major stadium event in the UK for more than 30 years, and will feature WWE Superstars such as Drew McIntyre, Roman Reigns, Bianca Belair, Seth Rollins and Ronda Rousey.
The guide also comes as data from Duolingo has revealed a continuous rise in its users learning the Welsh language. In 2020, it was the fastest growing language on the platform, and over 1.5 million users now learn Welsh on the app.
Colin Watkins, Country Manager at Duolingo, commented: “Duolingo makes learning a new language both fun and accessible, so we’re delighted to bring Welsh to new audiences ahead of this huge WWE event. We hopeWWE fans from across the world will embrace this guide and you’ll be hearing these fantastic words and phrases booming across the Principality Stadium on 3rd September.”
