The Welsh Ysgol Haf.


The Welsh Ysgol Haf. To the Editor of the County Echo." Sir,—Kindly allow me a small space to call the attention of your readers to the advan- tages of the above institution :-The object of the course is to provide teachers in secondary and primary schools, as well as other students, with a knowledge (at least in outline) of the construction, grammar and literature of the Welsh language, and also to suggest methods of teaching Welsh suitable for such schools. It is but reasonable, on educational grounds, that in the schools of Wales the national language should have a recognised place, and that our teachers should receive the necessary training to enable them to cope effectively with the demands in this respect of educa- tion! authorities, and to bring out the best that is in the children under their charge. The course will be found advantageous to: (a) Candidates for the King's Scholarship Exam- ination, in which Welsh is an optional subject carrying with it a maximum of 100 marks, (b) Candidates for the Acting Teachers' Certifi- cate Examination, in which credit is given for proficiency in advanced Welsh. (c) Candidates for the Matriculation Examination of the University of Wales, (d) Teachers in primary and secondary schools and evening classes who may not have had direct instruction in Welsh, or who wish to continue their former studies. (e) Other students of the Welsh language and literature. The following gentlemen have kindly consented to deliver lectures :—Mr E. Anwyl, M.A., Professor of Welsh, the Univer- sity College of Wales, Aberystwyth [Grammar of the Welsh Language; select Cywyddan from Dafydd ab Gwilym history of Welsh Liter- ature in the 19th century.
