Hey, found this great site that made by someone from the US. Loads of good stuff there, shows you how to pronounce all the dodgy letters non-Welsh people get trouble with and so on.

Just posting because I seen an article on BBC News that some schools are teaching their pupils Elvish, which is based on Finnish and of course Welsh (mainly Welsh pronounciations).

I find it hard to believe seeing as Welsh is an official language of the UK and yet they don't take notice, and they decide to teach a made-up language?

Noswaith Da,

--------------------
Mae hen wlad fy nhadau yn annwyl i mi
Gwlad beirdd a chantorion, enwogion o fri;
Ei gwrol ryfelwyr, gwladgarwyr tra mâd,
Tros ryddid gollasant eu gwaed.

Gwlad, Gwlad, pleidiol wyf i'm gwlad.
Tra môr yn fur i'r bur hoff bau,
O bydded i'r hen iaith barhau.

Hen Gymru fynyddig, paradwys y bardd,
Pob dyffryn, pob clogwyn i'm golwg sydd hardd;
Trwy deimlad gwladgarol, mor swynol yw si
Ei nentydd, afonydd i mi.

Os treisiodd y gelyn fy ngwald tan ei droed,
Mae hen iaith y Cymry mor fyw ac erioed,
Ni luddiwyd yr awen gan erchyll law brad,
Na thelyn berseiniol fy ngwlad.

Pob Hwyl Cymro, I think you'll find the BBC caters very well for Welsh learners try http://www.bbc.co.uk/wales/learnwelsh/ for a start.

Or perhaps you should start with http://www.bbc.co.uk/worldservice/learningenglish/ rolleyes.gif

Hey, Welsh Guy! What rock have you been hiding under?

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.
