i knew it was st davids day today but i didn't know it was traditionally associated with daffodils.

i was wondering why the students were standing outside the concourse next to the uni with daffodils all day.

I didn't make the link, infact I was too busy trying to avoid being bombarded with leaflets for Tomorrow/Wed's/Thursday's Union Elections, and actually thought the Welsh flag was there to represent one of the candidates.

How many of you welsh people speak welsh? Did you do GCSE welsh? I was surprised by how many people were non welsh speakers when I lived in wales.

I didn't do GCSE but I was forced by law to do some welsh but the lessons usual were "Right everyone if you have any homework or coursework you may do it."

I did have 3 lessons of welsh a week in year 7,8 and 9 but I just forgot everything

i have learnt welsh since i was in infant school, and i took it upto GCSE level, but i honestly couldn't write a thing now! well, i could, but it would be basic junior school stuff!

and big mac, although welsh-speaking people would still call them big macs, would be called 'mac fawr(pronounced vowrrr)

i have a welsh dictionary next to me so if anyone would like anything written, let me know!!

Do they speak it widely where you live? They are trying to revive Welsh in local communities arent they so it doesnt die out.

Was forced by school into Welsh GCSE, did no work, had one lesson a week, had about 4 photocopies of notes for 2 years work, did no revision & got a C!!! Like being given a free one really!! It was admitedly a short course foundation tier but still one extra thing for forms etc, doesn't actually matter that English first language reception kids can speak more than I can, I've got a certificate!! LOL

They provided 400 welsh cakes today for a sixth form of 150 at the most, reason enough to celebrate!! Eisteddfod (sp?) stuff starts on Friday, which means no double chemistry for me!!

welsh language is not widely spoken but welsh culture is alive and living.

it is now compulsory for all school children under 16 to have formal welsh lessons.

i used to love school eisteddfords....my sisters got hers on friday i think...

i never did find any welsh cakes today...but in an hour im going out to celebrate properly with my honory welsh people.

love Katy ***

What does this "welsh cake" tastes like? Sounds from the recipe to be a sweet thing.

They're sort of a flatter sweeter version of scones (not very good at describing tastes sorry)
