People now can learn Welsh in this newly opened culture centre. Keith Cleaver, one participant who can’t speak Welsh, said that it’s his first attempt to learn Welsh and he will continue going to the centre. At the same time, he added that the teaching was very interactive which made him very interested in the course. Through his job at a local super market, he was made aware that there are many people who speak Welsh, and sometimes Keith has no idea what people are talking about and can’t join the conversation. He thinks thinks is a great opportunity for him to learn the language.

In fact, the interest of people learning the Welsh language is increasing. Rachel Davies, who is the course director, said the number of people who learn Welsh was up to three thousand last year in the general Cardiff region, and they were expecting hundreds of people to participate in Saturday’s open day activity.
