PUBLISHERS

Publishers are always grateful for polite letters pointing out errors, and for constructive suggestions in general. Why not let them know what you think of their books, and urge them on to greater efforts? It might do them good to be reminded how many people out there are learning and speaking Welsh. Show them the demand is there – that’s the only way they’ll bring out new and better things!

METALINKS (LINKS TO LINKS)

Any number of places have good general lists of Welsh links, so it seems pointless to supply yet another one here. Instead here are some links to other people’s links pages (metalinks?). One of the best is to be found at Hazel Davey’s site: http://pcfcij.dbs.aber.ac.uk/cymraeg/welsh.html (go to ‘Internet Resources’). It’s called TWLL which in Welsh means a hole, but in this case stands for The Welsh Learner’s Links, and it’s an opening into all sorts of useful places. More good links can be found at the site of the publishing firm Y Lolfa: http://www.ylolfa.com/cyfeiriadur/index.html.

For details of what’s on in or near LONDON, Welsh learners and speakers should bookmark Theo Brueton’s comprehensive site Digwyddiadur at http://www.anoeth.demon.co.uk/digwyddiadur.html. Details of WELSH SOCIETIES outside the UK can be found at http://www.wales-usa.org/society.html (National Welsh-American Foundation), http://www.rio.edu/madog/Directory/Welsh_societies.htm (Madog Center, Rio Grande University, Ohio), and for Canada, http://www.infowales.com/canada.html.
