Clwb Siarad 1/11/18 – Learn Welsh with us each month

This was another busy meeting, with 27 members present.  The Beginners’ Group went back to the beginning to revise the first 4 units.  The Intermediate Group, fresh from a very successful revision session the week before, made great progress with Unit 19.  Our friends from Kendal and Morcambe arrived safely despite numerous train cancellations, but our potential new member from Kendal sadly didn’t turn up.  We’ll blame the frustrating lack of public transport.  We were, however, delighted to welcome Father Paul Hackett, originally from Bournemouth, who learned Welsh when he worked in Cardiff in the 1980s, now lives in Winkley Square and who speaks the language fluently.  In the afternoon we had a lively and interesting Reading Group Meeting.  During the first hour we studied a Learner’s Letter in Lingo Newydd.  In the second hour we read the last two chapters of “Y Stelciwr” by Manon Steffan Ros and enjoyed discussing the characters and themes of this short, but incredibly skilfully written novel.  Dates to put in your diary:

27/11/18:  Tbc:  Revision Class for the Intermediate Group, 10.00am-1.00pm, Education Room.

2/12/18:  Christmas lunch at 12.00 noon in The Continental Pub Preston, PR1 8JP,  followed by a free entry screening of the Welsh film (with subtitles) “Hedd Wyn”.

6/12/18:  Tbc:  Reading Group Meeting, 1.00-3.00pm, Education Room.

Roedd hwn yn gyfarfod prysur iawn unwaith eto, gyda 27 o aelodau’n bresennol.  Aeth Grŵp y Dechreuwyr  nôl i’r cychwyn i adolygu’r bedair uned gynta.  Gwnaeth y Grŵp Canolradd gynnydd sylweddol efo Uned 19, yn sgîl sesiwn adolygu llwyddiannus iawn yr wythnos gynt.  Cyrhaeddod ein ffrindiau o Kendal a Morcambe yn ddiogel er gwaetha nifer o gansladau trên, ond ni welson ein darpar aelod newydd o Kendal, yn anffodus.  Rhown fai ar ddifyg cludiant cyhoeddus.  Serch hynny, roedden wrth ein bodd i groesawu Tad Paul Hackett, yn wreiddiol o Bournemouth, a ddysgodd Cymraeg pan oedd o’n gweithio yng Nghaerdydd yn yr 80au, sydd bellach yn byw yn Winkley Square a sy’n rhugl yn yr iaith.  Cafodd y Grŵp Darllen gyfarfod bywiog a diddorol yn y prynhawn.  Mi wnaethon ni astudio Llythyr gan Ddysgwr o Lingo Newydd yn ystod yr awr gynta.  Yn ystod yr ail awr, darllenon y ddwy bennod ola o “Y Stelciwr” gan Manon Steffan Ros a mwynhaon trafod y cymeriadau a’r themâu o’r nofel fer, ond hynod o gelfydd, hon.  Dyddiadau i’ch dyddiadur:
