Our Learners – Gordon Jones

Nant Gwrtheyrn > News > Our Learners – Gordon Jones

Gordon was born in Alltwen near Pontardawe and brought up within a Welsh speaking family. Gordon has travelled the world. He has lived in Somerset, England for many years and lived in Honk Kong for fifteen years, working as a Bursar in a privately funded school. He has not been able to speak Welsh since he left Wales in 1955. Gordon attended the Higher 1 level course last week. He has finally been able to live his dream of practicing his Welsh at Nant Gwrtheyrn.

“ I have enjoyed every day at the Nant and enjoyed meeting other learners. Eleri is an excellent tutor “

Gordon is hoping to return next year and will persuade his daughter Ceri to return with him to embark on her journey to become a fluent Welsh speaker.
