As we prepare to celebrate all things Welsh in the county for St David’s Day we’re taking this opportunity today to acknowledge the contributions staff are making to increase their use of the Welsh language in the work place.
Learners, mentors and language leaders have come together as we show appreciation of their dedication in promoting the Welsh language.
If you are interested in learning Welsh there are a wide range of courses being held across the county. Information on these can be found on our website and remember if you are a learner or fluent in the language that you are welcome to contact us in Welsh.
We have a dedicated team of staff in the council who can support those who want to learn the language. We have also introduced mentors who are there to help learners to build their confidents to use the Welsh they learn in the workplace
For Welsh speakers, who need a little assistance to use their Welsh confidently, we have online resources to help them make more use of Welsh while working, on the phone, in correspondence or in meetings .
I’m looking forward to attending a number of events to celebrate St David’s Day as I’m sure you are. The language leaders are busy planning events to celebrate St David’s Day internally and for the public.
Yet again this year Carmarthen is holding a week of events to celebrate all things Welsh with a number of events - from a concert with The Band of the Welsh Guards to the annual St David’s Day parade through the town.
