Hello all, I have also been to the group in Burryport on one occassion and found them all to be very keen, there were complete learners and experienced welsh speakers I was so pleased to be able to use a bit more welsh without feeling nervous, the Stella Artois helped (even if it was a bit pricey at £3.50 a pint!). If anyone lives close enough (It's a bit far away for me to attend regularly) to go I woulde highly recommend it.

Awyddus. :lol:

Hear,hear! Alas the last 'official' session is next week until October. : :sad: Though I did hear a rumour that people will carry on meeting up, as one said 'well I'm not going to stop using my welsh until October!" So hopefully the sessions will continue (unofficially) over the summer months :smile:

In a way it is sad that spoken welsh in this small town is now confined to a bar on a Tuesday evening, where once it was the predominant language used on the street throughout my childhood. No doubt this is a microcosm of what has happened throughout Wales and for many reasons, which I will not attempt to express my views on this at this time.

At the same time though, it provides a glimmer of hope and provides an experience as I expressed in my first post and I for one will definitely return to this safe harbour of the welsh language!

Kind regards
Tricia

Oh, sorry, Tricia. I should have put the English translation after it. :oops:

Cofion cynnes (Warm regards),

Dim problem HarmonicNature, I learnt a new word so thanks! I was too tired at that point to look in a dictionary that night! And now I have heard it at the end of gwers 13 so have been practising to all and sundry even to my gorgeous cat! :hengath:
Take care
