After finding out from the other thread Iaith ar Daith (Social Media)
that the programme had reappeared, I saw the whole episode.
I can definitely confirm my first impression and add one reflection that I found particularly interesting:
when I saw the first social video/promo for the show about why they were learning Welsh, I noticed that their background and motivations had ZERO similarities with mine when I started SSiW:
I’m not Welsh.
I have no Welsh ancestors.
I don’t live in Wales.
I had never been to Wales before.
Hardly knew the language existed, had basically no knowledge of it at all, and certainly never had learning it in my bucket list!
However, now I’ve seen the episode, I realize my own experience as a learner experimenting my Welsh in Wales in the wild a few months after starting the Course is… almost IDENTICAL to theirs!
Well, minus the cameras following me, and being a celeb, of course.
But I have to say that people reactions to me (a foreigner) trying to speak Welsh were always so enthusiastic that it made me feel so much like a celebrity anyway that…it’s really almost the same!
Of course well done SSiW. Although hey @Macky, we’ll have to work on getting more Southern accent out there!
p.s. Uh, forgot to mention I’ve also noticed there’ @aran in the intro!
