Ever wanted to learn Welsh? Now is your chance as Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire are offering new 30 week courses for complete beginners starting this September for just £45.
Two Pembrokeshire residents who have embraced learning Welsh are Sarah Lewis from Saundersfoot and Vic Dennis from Narberth who are this year’s joint winners of the Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire-Dysgu Cymraeg Sir Benfro Learner of the Year award.
"Sol speaks Welsh very well.
She passed the Intermediate exam last year with distinction, and she has attended a number of additional courses such as our Saturday courses as well as our Easter and Summer courses over the past few years,”said Siân Griffiths, Learn Welsh Pembrokeshire’s Manager.
In the past Sol has taken part in the Siarad scheme, enjoying and benefiting from having various conversations with Welsh speakers. Sol is a member ‘Côr Dysgu Cymraeg Sir Benfro’ and has sang at numerous public events. She attends a monthly reading group and enjoys reading in Welsh.
Vic Dennis has attended a number of courses over the years and uses his Welsh wherever he gets the chance. He does a lot of work in his local community and is a school governor. He has been a county councillor and has promoted the Welsh language through his work.
Vic often attends Menter Iaith Sir Benfro’s coffee and chat sessions in Narberth. In May this year, he led a walk for learners around Narberth.
Vic would like to thank his tutors, Tomos Hopkins and Gaynor Watts-Lewis.
