WELSH - USE IT OR LOSE IT


USE IT OR LOSE IT


We all know that 'ir hen iaith' is in
need of being used more, as well
as taught.

Did ANYONE read Leighton Andrews'
magnificent 2012 policy statement, in
which spoken Welsh refresher courses
were identified as needed for/by the
age group 14 up?

You ALL read it?  (it's just me then!)

Why isn't Welsh now spoken on our
streets, after we've schooled so many
thousands of youths in Welsh schools?


I've just discovered a tremendous blog,
which discusses Wales in most facets
- including how we're failing to help
our youngsters on their language use:

This blog is an amazing panorama of Wales,
the issues, and possibilities, and - if it also
starts to address how we could make it PAY
to speak
Welsh in businesses and work

- it could be perfect!

NEW TO WELSH?



Here's a great starting point website if
you'd like to learn Welsh online:

S4C

"TAKE THEM TO COURT" (say the bells of ....)

Welsh-language broadcaster S4C says it is to
challenge the UK government in court, over
plans to hand its funding over to the BBC.

The channel's managing board says it is launching
a judicial review of the government's decision to
“effectively merge” it with the BBC.

Their announcement comes after Chancellor George
Osborne tells the Commons that the BBC will now
"part-fund" S4C.

“It would have a disastrous impact on viewers
across Wales at a time when the BBC has already
cut spending on both English and Welsh-language
programming in Wales,” chair John W Jones says.

"Under such an arrangement it is inevitable that
Welsh language television would have to compete
with every other BBC service, and the S4C
Authority believes that this would pose a
serious risk to the provision of Welsh-language
television," he adds.

"I am astounded at the contempt that the London
government has shown, not just towards S4C, but
also towards the Welsh people, and indeed, the
language itself."

Grant O God your protection,

and in strength understanding
and in understanding knowledge
and in knowledge
the knowledge of justice,

the love of all existences,
and in the love of all existences
the love of God and all goodness.
