Castle volunteers brush up their Welsh

Welsh Classes at Cardigan Castle.

Ready to learn Welsh!

The new term of Welsh classes for adults is about to begin in Cardigan (first week in October), but some students got in early!

A group of Cardigan Castle volunteers have had an early tailor-made course to help them increase their skills in Welsh for their work in the Castle.

The tutor Richard Vale arranged for the final lesson to be a special one, with five local Welsh speakers coming in to help the volunteers as they did their work, and Cardigan's Mayor and Castle Trustee Clive Davies coming in to congratulate and encourage them. As a final flourish, the students were given a preview of the new classrooms in Tŷ Cadwgan, one of the Castle buildings, to the left of the Brioude Garden, above the 'Wishbone' shop. It has been specially adapted for teaching and has all mod cons such as interactive white boards and internet access, as well as light attractive rooms.

Most of the regular Welsh classes in Cardigan will be held here when the new term starts, with others in St.Mary's Old School and in the Guildhall. Classes are available for all levels, from complete beginners to those wanting to put a final polish on their spoken or written Welsh skills. They run in the day and evening and can be faster-paced (4 hours a week) or more leisurely (2 hours a week).

For information and advice on all classes in Cardigan and throughout the area, come to one of the information stalls in Aldi on Thursday 15th, Friday 23rd or Saturday 24th September, or in Tesco towards the end of the month. Or you can contact Philippa Gibson 01239 654561 [email protected]
