We are looking forward to welcoming Ana Chiabrando Rees here to Nant during May. Ana is coming to visiting Wales all the way from Patagonia. Ana will spend a week at Nant doing some Voluntary work with the Education department. Everyone is welcome to come along to hear Ana telling her story and give a talk about Patagonia on Thursday, May 19.

Occasionally, we welcome groups from all over the world here to Nant. Many are eager to learn some of the language and the history of the Welsh language. We had the pleasure of welcoming an enthusiastic group of students from the Brittany here recently. The majority of them were first language speakers of Breton and it was extremely interesting to see so many of them have a good grasp of the Welsh language in such a short time. After the lesson, there was a guided tour of the village and the opportunity to hear the unique history of Nant before ending the visit with a Welsh tea in Caffi Meinir.

Entry level 1 course was packed during the last week of April. We were pleased to welcome Jo Toft from Mynytho on the course. Jo, who is editor of the new magazine We Love Llŷn, writes about her experience here at Nant in the summer edition of the magazine.
