Saturn Moon Rocket At The US Rocket And Space Centre In Huntsville, Alabama

What kind of week did we have in Huntsville, Alabama, the Rocket City, for Cymdeithas Madog's 2016 Cwrs Cymraeg Welsh language week?  Well, it was a blast (off)!  Cwrs Cymraeg Dinas Y Roced ("The Rocket City Welsh Course"), July 17th to 24th, 2016, at the University of Alabama in Huntville was a very busy week of Welsh language learning that kept us going from the dawn's early light to nightfall.  There was lots of Welsh to learn for every myfyriwr ("student") from the complete beginner to the most experienced of Welsh language learners.  Our tutors made sure that our minds were filled to overflowing with yr hen iaith ("the old language").  There were also a variety of workshops to attend, a cwrs newspaper, and the famous Cymdeithas Madog Cwrs Cymraeg Dinas Y Roced choir to attend.

But when we weren't busy learning, there was time for relaxing evening activities including folk dancing, a quiz in the pub, a Welsh film night, Cwrs Cymraeg's Eisteddfod, a sumptuous banquet and a noson lawen (a talent night where everyone takes part).  The highlight of the week was all the Welsh that we learned.  A close second was our Wednesday field trip off campus to the US Rocket and Space Center in Huntsville.

When Sunday rolled around after a full week of Welsh learning, we backed our bags, said "hwyl fawr" ("good bye") to friends old and new, and made our way home.  But we won't forget the Welsh that we learned this week.  Now we have 51 weeks to practice the Welsh we have learned and prepare ourselves for the 2017 Cwrs Cymraeg at Siena College in Albany, New York.  See you there.
