New Year Course attracts almost 100 people
26 January 2017
A New Year course was held by Cardiff University’s Welsh for Adults (Cardiff) 7- 8 January 2017 in the Hadyn Ellis building.
This was an intensive revision course for all levels of Welsh for Adults provision – entry, foundation, intermediate and higher. 98 people attended for the two-day course which allowed them to practice their language skills and socialise through the medium of Welsh.
During the evenings, informal sessions were also held in the Flora pub, Cathays, allowing the learners to chat over a cup of tea or a pint and practice their Welsh further.
Jo Full, Informal Learning Tutor with Welsh for Adults (Cardiff), said: “The New Year course was an excellent opportunity for our learners to come together to practice their Welsh outside of their regular classes while getting to know, and sharing their experiences, with the other learners. It was great to see so many people coming together and enjoying speaking Welsh.”
The New Year course received excellent feedback from the learners for the quality of the teaching as well as the standard of the building and the general atmosphere.
Following the success of the New Year course a Saturday course will be held on Saturday 4 February in the Hadyn Ellis building. Registration is available through www.learnwelsh.co.uk.
The School of Welsh is responsible for providing Welsh for Adults courses in the Cardiff area on behalf of the National Centre for Learning Welsh. It has extensive experience of providing opportunities to learn Welsh and learn about Welsh culture. Welsh for Adults complements the current provision which includes Welsh for All (a free programme for Cardiff University students) and the Welsh Language Sabbatical Scheme (for teachers and teaching assistants).
