New book for Welsh learners inspired by rescue whippet who only understands Welsh

Here’s a book for Welsh learners with a difference! Teach your Dog Welsh aims to help Welsh learners practise their Welsh with their dog. The inspiration for the book came to Anne Cakebread after she re-homed Frieda, a rescue whippet. Anne came to realise that Frieda would only respond to Welsh commands. Slowly, whilst dealing with Frieda, Anne realised that she was overcoming her nerves about speaking Welsh aloud by talking to the dog, and her Welsh was improving as a result –this gave her the idea of creating a book to help other would-be learners whilst also using her skills as an illustrator.  read more

Rudolf Hess, Deputy Führer to Hitler, made a famous escape to Scotland in 1941 to arrange peace talks. He was dismissed as ‘mad’ by Hitler, and found mentally unstable by a physician on arrival in Scotland. He was incarcerated in various institutions, and it remains relatively unknown that the War Office sent a representative to Talgarth Military Hospital in ‘isolated South Wales’ and recommended that Hess should be sent there.  read more
