We need to SHOW people that potential learners are a reality. By showcasing ourselves as actual learners with a commitment to using the living language we can hopefully show people outside Cymru that Welsh is real and alive, show non-speakers inside Cymru that practical acquisition of Welsh is feasible on a sufficiently fast timescale to be really useful and show Welsh speakers, especially in the Fro, that they don’t need to carry on assuming that everyone from “The East” is going to turn the place English.
On that last point, there will, sadly, still be some people who do want to “turn everywhere they go English”. All we can really do is distance ourselves from such attitudes and try to counter with lots of instances of people (us!) who come in with a positive embrace for the living language of Welsh.
