Here's what you say about us...

If you're a person who wants to learn Welsh, this book is not for you. If you're a person whose first language is Welsh and you want to improve your spoken English, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you're an English speaker who's due to visit South Wales, this book is definitely for you.
A visitor to Wales will almost certainly have to converse with a local at some stage, and that's where the trouble may start. Ask for directions and you'll be no better off than if they'd been given in Klingon. You'll probably assume that the person you spoke to answered you in Welsh, but in fact the person will actually have been speaking to you in Valleys-speak - the non-standard English used in South Wales in everyday conversation. This language is far removed from the English that you'll be used to, and hopefully these pages will ease your communication problems during your stay in the country.
