Fame at last!

I turned up to my Welsh class yesterday, and BBC Wales were there, filming a piece about the Welsh assembly, and how we feel about it so far removed from it in rural mid-Wales.  We happened to be rehearsing a piece for a little concert next week, and they decided they wanted to film that, and get some of the students’ opinions on the assembly. It was shown on BBC Wales Today yesterday evening. My apologies for the video/sound quality.

Wales according to call centres



My Welsh tutor introduced me to this map last year when I started learning Welsh; living in Wales as I do, this is a regular challenge to deal with whenever I speak to someone in a call centre!  “Yes, I know there’s a ch on the end of the word, but it hasn’t been pronounced since the 1800s around here…”  I thought it might provide some Tuesday amusement.
