IAITH is looking forward to starting  to pilot a new course on language assertiveness with Mudiad Meithrin as part of the LISTEN project.      

The LISTEN project is piloting a training programme that helps speakers of regional and minority languages express themselves in their own language while feeling calm and self-assured.

  • The training will offer strategies when people are unsure whether their counterparts speak the same language.
  • This methodology will be supported by reading material, videos, and resources.
  • The main outcome of the LISTEN project will be the development of a methodology for adapting the concept of 'language confidence' to specific situations and developing courses  for speakers of minority languages.

Placemaking is the Welsh Government’s way of realising the Wellbeing of Future Generation goals through the planning system. At the “Eisteddfod Amgen” (the virtual Eisteddfod) in August Owain Wyn, BURUM and Dr Kathryn Jones, Cwmni IAITH  presented a webinar  looking  at land use planning in Wales from the perspective of “a Wales ...with  a thriving Welsh language”, and in particular, the Government’s target of realising a million  Welsh speakers by 2050.  This article by Owain summarises that presentation and discusses from an interdisciplinary perspective what planners can and should do to strengthen Placemaking's contribution to the national effort.

Welsh Government has set an ambitious policy framework for Welsh with its Cymraeg 2050 document (Welsh Government: 2017). The document has received widespread support from a large number of members from all parties of the Welsh Parliament.

Below, we outline some ideas that Welsh political parties could consider when drawing up their manifestos for the proposed national election.
