Almost every Tuesday evening between October and the end of May, a group from the Colorado Welsh Society gathers in Denver to study "Cymraeg."
It's fall and that means a new session of the Colorado Welsh Society Welsh Language Classes is beginning. Once again this year the Society language classes will meet in rooms on the campus of the Archdiocese of Denver, at 1300 S. Steele St., which is conveniently located on Louisiana St. between University Blvd. and Colorado Blvd., a few blocks north of I-25.
There are several forms of Welsh and our classes focus mainly on the modern spoken language, although comparisons with the older literary or biblical forms of the language are made. We try to keep the classes fun with the aim of getting students to try to speak the language rather than emphasizing grammatical perfection.
Classes are offered at three levels: beginners, intermediate (last year's beginners), and an advanced class. We meet on Tuesday from 7 to 8:30 pm. At 8.30pm, all three groups come together for a social time or "Te Bach" before heading home.
Classes are free to all members of the Welsh Society. Class members also take turns bringing a treat such as cookies for the "Te Bach."
