The stall in Tesco giving out information on Welsh classes in Cardigan and the area was popular with a huge range of shoppers last week, – and also had a visit from the Mayor and Mayoress of Cardigan who came to give their support.
The Mayor and Mayoress, John and Morina Adams-Lewis are long-term staunch supporters of Welsh learners. As well as helping friends, family and others locally, they are also part of the large team of local Welsh-speakers who come regularly to chat informally with learners in Welsh classes.
This is just one of the many factors which help those learning in Cardigan. A wide range of courses – all levels, day and evening, faster and slower paced, focussing on conversation or on written Welsh – is run by dedicated tutors who make classes fun. The varied course materials, on-line support, videos, social groups for practising, and special events organized for learners outside of the classroom are also important – and the results speak for themselves! Many learners in the area become completely fluent and are able to take a full part in the Welsh-speaking lives of their communities, or to gain work where Welsh is a job-requirement.
Classes are starting up at the end of September, and details can be found on www.learnwelshinmidwales.org and advice is available by phoning freephone 0800 876 6975 or locally 01239 654561.
