We’ve had an email from Ifan Llewelyn Jones, who is the Language Development Officer with Hunaniaeth, Cyngor Gwynedd. They have some events coming up which are ideal for new Welsh speakers to join in and practise their Welsh with others.

The first is on 10th June:

edited to add - I’ve just noticed the poster doesn’t say where Caffi Kiki is - it’s in Blaenau Ffestiniog.

North Wales based group Anelu - Aim Higher is running guided walks for learners to practice their Welsh!

https://www.northwaleschronicle.co.uk/news/17711599.welsh-learners-and-speakers-take-to-the-hills-to-boost-use-of-the-welsh-language/?ref=fbshr&fbclid=IwAR3Uz-pHjzODiSQdU_AifSKOkng9Suu8GR8WG8ilGps9JwchNIvChEZMqNA

Ifan says that they had a good number of Welsh learners joining them for the last walk, but they’re a bit short for the next couple. They have some first language Welsh speakers ready and willing to chat with learners and give them support during the walk, so it’s a great opportunity.

They’re particularly keen to get a few more people to the walk starting from Tanygrisiau on 8th July, so not long to go. It starts at 10:00 in Tanygrisiau and you walk to Croesor. It costs £5 which includes the cost of the minibus returning you to Tanygrisiau after a cuppa and cake in Caffi Croesor.


#7

The walk after that is on the 10th July, from Bethesda to Llanberis. This one also costs £5 including the bus to take you back to Bethesda. The walk is 7 miles and should take 5 to 6 hours, so you need to have some experience of walking in that kind of terrain.

I’ve put my name down for the walk from Bethesda to Llanberis on the 10th . Edrych ymlaen :slight_smile:


#9

On the first Friday of every month, Clwb Ymarfer meets in Tywyn between 10:30 and noon at the Magic Lantern Cinema (Y Llusern Hud) to chat in Welsh over tea and coffee. The next session will be July 5th. Suggested donation: £2.50. Gobeithio eich gweld chi yno!
