Eich bod yn synnu fy mod yn siarad eich iaith mor dda!**
DuoLingo launched their Welsh course this afternoon & I was one of the first people to sign up. I already know the days of the week & some greetings, although the words are pretty mushy in my mouth.
I remember going to visit my relatives in Cardiff, and Aldwyn insisting I try to use Welsh, so I dutifully told the taxi driver I was going to 4 Llanfair road in as clicky a Welsh accent as I could manage.
The driver shrugged: Never heard of it.
It's a big street! It's right off of Cathedral Parkway!
I gave in & said "lan-fair" & he said, Oh! and took me right there.

** You are surprised I speak your language so well! OK, I got this one from Google translate. It's the one sentence the brilliant & hilarious Barbara Barg knows in a dozen languages.
