First Adventure in Wales!

I'm studying abroad in London this term, but I have quite a bit of free time to travel. My first order of business was to get to Wales as soon as possible. So last weekend I took the train to Cardiff and spent the day there. I had a wonderful time!

As I was wandering about, the first thing I ran across an event called "The Human Library: Exploring Multilingualism in Wales". I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I took the dive anyway. It turned out that it was sort of a 'meet and greet' with a list of books that considered the impact of multilingualism. A different person represented each book and you would chat with them about the book.

Of course, I didn't recognize any of the titles, so I picked one out that had Welsh in it. A lucky pick, because it just so happened that the lady representing the title was a native Welsh speaker as well as a tutor! We exchanged some conversations in Welsh and she gave me a few new words to add to my vocabulary. It was exciting to speak Welsh to someone in person for the first time!

Nes i gael cyfle i defnyddio ychydig o gymraeg Llangollen wythnos diwethaf... Nes i wedi synnu achos on i'n meddwl na fydd lot o gymraeg yn Llongollen. Mae dau siop yn y ganol y dref ble maen nhw'n siarad cymraeg - y cigydd fawr a'r siop gwniadwaith. Oedd y dyn yn y siop gwniadwaith yn neis iawn - oedd e'n helpu fi gyda gair newydd. Naeth e'n profiad hapus iawn iawn! :party:
