Here are some statements made by our learners regarding their experiences learning with the Welsh language:
I have been working in a house with two individuals. The one service user speaks Welsh as his first language. He does understand and speaks English. My journey with him has been a wonderful experience. I have made the effort to learn the basics in Welsh but over and above that this client loves his music. Through him and his love of music I have learned some of these songs or bits of them.
– Sandra, NVQ Level 2 in Health and Social Care
The face-to-face classes and support from my colleagues gave me the confidence boost that needed to try using my Welsh more often at work. Even some of the individuals I support are helping me along the way by starting to communicate with me in simple Welsh.
– Clare, NVQ Level 3 in Health and Social Care
I started providing care in the community and never really understood the importance of the Welsh language until providing care to people who’s first language is Welsh.
