That is a great website. I am not sure why no one has posted there. I will ask Wizard if he can merge my Welsh lessons into their....

He just created the post, so that may be why no one has posted there yet. When I get back on Monday, I will definately have something brilliant to say in Welsh that I will put on!! lol.gif

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Travel for Kids - Wales

Here is a great website of things to do with children while visiting Wales. It looks like a wonderful site.

www.verbix.com

This is good for conjugating Welsh verbs. Two slight problems: conjugation in Welsh is very formal, so you only really need to worry about conjugatin bod
Second problem is that it's apparently under construction.

Actually, I just remembered that I give these websites to the children I teach Welsh...

Most British Governmental websites provide Welsh, including:

National Eisteddfod this year will be held near Bangor. Here's a good website:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/northwest/sites/eisteddfod

Be sure to go to 'A learner's view' about an Englishman learning Welsh and will be helping in the learner's tent.

This is today's news but I thought it worth posting:

"No Top-up fees for Welsh students"
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/wales/4115074.stm

"It should encourage a higher number of Welsh students to stay in Wales and won't offer incentives for English students to come here to avoid paying top-up fees."

In response to the Welsh top up fees, as a Welsh student studying in Wales, the issue is a very sore topic. The current system is very bureaucratic and rigid, but lacks many tests to effectively fund students and institutions.

While I was in London, I was refused a grant as it was only available to English students due to the benefits of the Welsh National Assembly, whereas the Welsh National Assembly refused to help me as my mother earns too much. Nonetheless, my mother's wage is nowhere near enough to fund a child at university in London.

My mother now has 2 jobs and both my brother and I work many hours a week to be able to fund ourselves.

I had no idea the real situation was like that. I posted the website thinking it was a great news for all the Welsh students in Wales.

It is good news - top up fees would make the situation even worse.

Here's a good site for the International Island Games which has just started on July 9 in Shetland Islands. Ynys Mn is competing.

So far Ynys Mn has won one gold in men's shooting and one bronze in women's 100m butterfly. Best wishes to our Cymry and Cymraesau!

It must be a dissapointing news, but we can still cheer for our team. By the way, it helps to read the news in both languages.
