Shwmae Day – 15 October 2018

October 10, 2018


We will be celebrating Shwmae (English: how are you?) Day on Monday 15 October which is an opportunity to show that Welsh belongs to everyone and we can all use Welsh all year round – at University, in the shop, leisure centre, at work, in the community, with friends – everywhere! So why not give it a go and start every conversation with Shw’mae (shoo-my?) or Sumae (see-my?)

What’s on at USW?

Menter Iaith Casnewydd will be at the University entrance with information about Welsh medium activities, treats for anyone who starts a conversation in Welsh, and a competition to win a £100 shopping voucher.
