Breakthroughs: Does anybody have small successes/breakthroughs speaking Cymraeg they want to share?


Must meet up with you again.


I hope that this will encourage fellow students and SSiW teachers alike.

Today, I needed to help a friend to navigate across Swansea four times in a minibus. The challenge was that I was only allowed to speak in Welsh.

All went well, although it was a close thing at a few junctions. You know the type where you need to be in a certain lane (even though it seems wrong and both have straight ahead arrows), and then change lanes within a few yards, ready for the next set of lights. Straight ahead here, but left at the next turn, etc, etc. Anyone who has been to Swansea will know what I mean.

I really feel that I have turned a corner now (if you’ll excuse the pun); as I now know that I can use Welsh in everyday life. If I can do it, anyone can.


Yes! My Llandeilo time is now a bit randomly timed and we are still moving in stuff from storage and decorating etc, so time is a bit short before Christmas, but do come and visit if you like.
