cymraig aus St Anton, Austria

Postby Spenny » Tue Feb 22, 2011 12:50 am

Well, though I fell at the second hurdle of sustaining a dialogue of much meaning, I can report that I successfully floored anative Welsh speaker from Cardiff, who literally dropped her jaw in disbelief when I asked her if she spoke Welsh. She was completely phased by someone English speaking "her language" (in a good way) especially by my gog accent.

What made the difference to me was meeting another group of native Cardiff people who were about as anti-Welsh as I have ever met. I think I know who writes to the Western Mail!

I've told you before, you're not actually meant to HIT them. Typical English imperialist, going around beating up Welsh speakers...:wink:
