Hello all, I’m from Wrexham (North Wales), and although I learned some Welsh throughout school, I had no interest in retaining the language at all at the time. 25 ish years later, having joined the Froncysylte Male Voice Choir (as a top tenor), I decided I no longer wanted to remain a ‘plastic’ Welshman, so this is my venture into learning it for good.
I’ve applied for a job at a local educational institution, and Welsh is a desirable skill. I have too many reasons to learn Welsh, than to not!
Unfortunely, all of the Welsh songs and hymns I’ve learnt (as beautiful as they are) haven’t proved much use in everday life, however I’m hoping that my ability to pronounce any Welsh I read will stand me in good stead for learning the mechanics of the language. We’ll see!
To all of you who’re not Welsh by blood, I wish you all the best in becoming Welsh speaking adoptees! You have my sincere respect!
Hwyl fawr ffrindiau!
