" ... we just can't have people like you winning this competition"
Sounds like a thinly veiled compliment and an equally thinly veiled admission that the "official" learning establishment is unable to compete with the likes of the SSi method, at least when it comes to learning to speak the language.
I am sure we can keep the bookwork tutors away from the Jobcentre by giving them academic studies and the like to keep them busy ... but nobody can argue with results i.e. new, effective, Welsh speakers coming from this community. I only wish I had realised what I now know, years ago. I am also grafetul that I found SSiW before wasting my time on the likes of a "mynediad" course.
I may decide to do a Cymraeg i Oedolion course (at a suitably upper level) to improve, say, my ability to write letters and reports. But I am now utterly convinced that "second language" courses in any language can never be anything like as effective as courses which get the student to use the language. In retrospect, this seems blatantly obvious.
