SSiW Ottawa, Canada

Hi all,

Just a quick note to anyone wanting to learn Welsh in or around Ottawa, Canada. Paul Birt, Chair of Celtic Studies at the University of Ottawa, has started a small SSiW learner’s group. Our first gathering is going to be held October 9th, location to be announced.

If you’re interested in joining the group, we coordinate via Facebook:

We’re aiming for two lessons a week and are currently on lesson 3 / 4.

I hope he doesn’t mind my sharing! In any case, it would be great to see you there!

Excellent news Sonia! I hope we will see some of the group popping into the forum to say Helo.

Oops, sorry about the typo in the weekly email … the sun must have been in my eyes! I did think it looked a bit weird at the time :smile:

Good luck - Pob lwc - to everyone in Ottawa on what could prove to be an exciting linguistic journey - if anyone in Ottawa wants to practice then Welsh then get in touch.

I live in Ottawa. Is there anybody still on the forum? This is an old thread now. Did the SSiW group ever get started?

The Facebook group ( has quieted some, but to the best of my knowledge, the learners are still learning. We generally use the group to ask the resident experts any questions we have about the lessons offered by SSiW.

Is this a virtual group or do people actually meet?

Largely virtual, with very occasional meet ups.
