Two weeks into our fall term already! Last week the advanced class was doing reading and translation (easy beginner materials, to get us going again after the summer) and discussing the readings and other topics in Welsh, with some English mixed in. We have decided to press on with "Pedair Cainc y Mabinogi i Ddysgwyr" by Alun Ifans, which we began last spring, and I've ordered copies for everyone from the Welsh Books council site, www.gwales.com. With six students in the class besides myself, everyone gets plenty of opportunity to use their Welsh during the hour and a half long class!
For a brief post in Welsh (with translation) about the weather in Denver this last weekend, see my own blog here.
