So you want to call yourself a Welsh Speaker? Our Event at Eisteddfod 2020

You can read the original Welsh version of this article here, or an easy read Welsh version for learners here!

What role do learners and second language speakers have to play in the efforts to achieve the Welsh Government's target of having 1 million Welsh speakers by 2050? Do the people of Wales have a particular image of the accent or appearance of Welsh speakers? Is the term 'non-Welsh speaking' a simple description of a linguistic condition or an insult to people from homes where Welsh is not the home language? These are just a few of the interesting questions that were asked during the lively Young Liberals' lively discussion held as part of this year's AmGen Eisteddfod events.

This is an easy-read version of a previously published post (Click here to read the original or click here to read an English translation). Vocab in bold is translated in the Geirfa section below.

Ydy dysgwyr yn gallu helpu targed Llywodraeth Cymru (the Welsh Government) o gael 1 miliwn o siaradwyr Cymraeg erbyn 2050? Ydy pobl Cymru yn meddwl bod siaradwyr Cymraeg yn edrych neu’n i gyd yn swnio’n debyg?

Pa rôl sydd gan ddysgwyr a siaradwyr ail iaith i’w chwarae yn yr ymdrechion i wireddu targed Llywodraeth Cymru o gael 1 miliwn o siaradwyr Cymraeg erbyn 2050? Oes gan bobl Cymru ddelwedd benodol o acen neu edrychiad siaradwyr Cymraeg? Ydy’r term ‘di-gymraeg’ yn ddisgrifiad syml o gyflwr ieithyddol neu’n sarhad ar bobl o gartrefi lle nad yw’r Gymraeg yn iaith yr aelwyd? Dyma ond ychydig o’r cwestiynau hynod o ddiddorol a ofynnwyd yn ystod trafodaeth ddifyr Rhyddfrydwyr Cymru Ifanc a gynhaliwyd yn rhithiol fel rhan o ddigwyddiadau’r Eisteddfod AmGen eleni.

A New Curriculum


Today our Welsh Liberal Democrat MS, Kirsty Williams, launched the parliamentary journey of the new Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Bill.
