Passing it on to the younger generation

Swmae Pawb (or Bawb, whichever is correct), I am very excited after speaking to my daughter. She had the following conversation with her 10 year old son, Micah, this morning. (We are in Australia).

Micah: Mum, dwi’n trist.
Mum: Pam?
Micah: Achos…

Why excited? Achos, their parents and they are Aussie born and had never heard welsh apart from me. I have put some words up for them, namely:

Bore da, dwi’n hapus/trist; Pam? Achos.

I live next door to them and when I go to see them in the morning the 6 and 8 year old will usually greet me with Bore da, dwi’n hapus, but this is the first time Welsh has been used in spontaneous dialogue between themselves. I put ‘da iawn’ up today.



That’s absolutely beautiful.

I’m hoping to do some stuff more specifically for children next year - but what you’re doing is, I believe, exactly the right approach - building little mini-sets of language for them… :star: :star2:


Oh. I absolutely love this @lynne_freudigmann. Fantastic!
