I want to be a Welsh speaker because I want to be able to have conversations with the local people where I live now in Ceredigion, in Welsh.
I grew up in Cardiff and learnt some Welsh at school, then spent some years abroad (where I learnt some Indonesian) and then my kids went to a Welsh medium school in Newport (Pembs) for a couple of years before we moved to England for husband’s work. I tried to learn again then but none of the Welsh I learned before made me a Welsh speaker.
Living in Wales again I want to make the leap from understanding a bit to actually speaking it. This course is making me start to ‘think’ in Welsh and I’ve now had my first - very short - conversation!
Also I live in the next village to Tresaith where you hold some of your courses so hoping once lockdown is over I can visit one.
