Where do you come from originally? How do you feel after winning the Learner of the Year Award?

I come from Port Talbot originally. I'm having loads of attention from my friends, people in work and even people I don't now after winning - it's great to hear that I have inspired people to learn - I like helping people.

Madison Tazu

Madison was brought up on a farm in west Wales but her family comes from Ireland originally. She said: “While I was travelling I met so many fascinating people who had really strong cultural identities and this led me to having a bit of an identity crisis.

“I’ve always been interested in cultures, but being both Irish and Welsh, I was sometimes unsure of who I was. I decided during my travels that I needed to embrace my Welsh background and learn the language.” Madison Tazu

For newly qualified primary school teacher, Chris Warlow, the new Entry course at Cardiff University’s Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan Welsh for Adults Centre offers the flexibility to juggle a busy working life and improve his long-term career prospect

The 30-year-old teacher, originally from Pembrokeshire now living in Roath in Cardiff, who starts his Entry course next month said, “I have recently qualified as a Primary School Teacher. Given the new National Curriculum in Wales and in particular the Cwricwlwm Cymreig with its emphasis on promoting bilingualism and Welsh identity I feel that a Welsh course would greatly benefit me and, in turn, my pupils.
