Language taster sessions for visitors and football fans

Friday, 2 June, 2017

A spokesperson on behalf of Cardiff City Council said that they were “extremely happy with the attention the Capital was receiving over the footballing weekend and that realising a vision for Cardiff as a truly billingual capital was a strategy the council was working actively towards in partnership with other key organizations and groups across the city including Menter Caerdydd and Cardiff University”.

For those wanting a little more than football idioms, Cardiff University’s Welsh department will be offering language taster sessions to visitors and fans alike at Yr Hen Lyfrgell in The Hayes, Cardiff tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday. Those sessions will be under the guidance of tutor Ashley Hurford and will be held between 11am – 12pm and again 1.30pm – 2.30pm.
