Offspring Said Something In Welsh

Postby r3dh3d » Mon Jun 03, 2013 10:15 am

My youngest (7) is mostly baffled by Welsh - we live in Surrey except for school holidays so the only Welsh she hears is when I stick SSIW on in the car and sometimes she parrots along with me. Last Friday we were up at South Stack in Anglesey and as we left the lighthouse I said: "What do we say?" so she said "Thankyou" to the chap who gave the tour. I said: "How do we say it?" and she screwed up her little face with the effort of thinking and said: "Diolch yn fawr?" He said "Croeso", of course, and I am counting that as A Conversation. :D

That's great and much more than I ever get from the non-Welsh speaking "kids" in my house, even though they are 17, nearly 16 and..... 51! Still, I did manage to get my partner to saying "shwmae" and "dyna ni" at the M4 toll bridge on Saturday, so that's got to be some sort of progress :party:
