About this Episode

"I never drop anything entirely. It's always still there in the background."

In today's episode, I have brought on my very own language teacher! Dafydd Morse is a Welsh-Maths-Baking-Everything tutor and learning enthusiast from Wales.

We'll chat about

  • Dafydd's own background growing up bilingually in Wales
  • Why it's important to Dafydd to pass on the Welsh language to his own children
  • Daf's love of learning and the one language he tried that didn't work out at all
  • What types of Welsh learners there are, and how you can become successful as a learner of any language

Bilingual Episode

You've been asking for a bilingual Welsh episode, and finally here it is!

I took the opportunity to ask Dafydd a few questions in Welsh in this episode. You will hear him reply in Welsh and conduct the conversation like that for a few minutes. I summarize in English afterwards. If you are not a Welsh learner, don't worry as we'll always switch back to English.

Here I always like to remember what the late Ron Gullekson from Language Surfer told me: "in a new language, I like to get uncomfortable as early as possible." So enjoy the challenge and enjoy the practice!
