Dysgu Cymraeg

Went to Welsh class and then afterwards ran into a woman who was in the very first Welsh class I ever went to three years ago. She stopped going to classes after a few months, and both she and another woman who was standing there expressed the belief that learning Welsh was such a hard thing to do -- GET OVER IT PEOPLE! Learning Welsh is not necessarily any harder than learning any other language. It has just become this self-perpetuating myth. If you want to learn Welsh and you set your mind to it, you can. Yes, there are things that help like having a good tutor, people to practice with, etc., but I know people who have learnt Welsh in all sorts of difficult situations like WHILE LIVING IN ENGLAND... So for all you people out there who think that Welsh is a difficult language, stop whining and go to class.
