Cymraeg (Welsh language) Group

Guest Gwlad Fy Nhadau

Y Grwp Sgwrsio Cymraeg Adelaide (the Welsh conversation group of Adelaide) is moving from the Brecknock hotel to the Box Factory Community Centre.


Meetings will still be first Thursday of the month at 7.30pm.


Croeso cynnes iawn i bawb pwy eisiau i siarad neu dysgu Cymraeg. (A very warm welcome to everyone who wants to speak or learn Welsh).


The group aims to cater for both fluent speakers and basic learners and all inbetween. So if you're from Welsh Wales and a recent arrival fluent in Cymraeg, or an Aussie of Welsh heritage wanting to get in touch with the language of the Land of your fathers, or a long time immigrant going rusty on your Welsh - Croeso!!

The Box Factory is in the city centre - canol y ddinas - see Box Factory Community Centre near end of Frome Rd and Carrington St.


Noswaith dda Karen, Sorry but not much is happening efo y grwp ar hyn o bryd. The group met for a while at the Welsh Cafe (in Cumberland Park near Big W) but maybe because it was winter, and instigators of the group like me had a run of other committments on first Thursdays, or went back to Wales, it has faded. However St David's Day/ Dydd Gwyl Dewi Sant was a raging success for the second year in a row.


The other reason the group has faded at present anyway was a lack of critical mass of Welsh speakers. There were lots wanting to learn Welsh but no-one with time to focus on teaching. Also the group had been was set up more for conversation for those fluent or semi-fluent or like me at least able to follow much of the gist. My parents were 10pound poms and I was a babe in arms coming to Australia, but have been back to visit and work in Wales and went to Cymraeg lessons there. Also I am moving to Qld soon so we desperately need people to run the website.


What the group needs is a quorum of Cymraeg speakers - over time enough have come and gone, so with a bit of energy it could revive. The website needs more administrators who can post main messages - if you want to be one let me know. I was talking with Anne who runs the Welsh Cafe and she will be a website administrator. Also the Welsh Cafe can serve as a place to get names together for a bigger quorum. Prior to the Welsh Cafe there was no central place for Welsh people in Adelaide. The Cafe is doing well. Encourage people you know to just drop in there.

      We have recently moved back to Adelaide after 17 years in America. We have a 17 & 19 year old and would love to meet other expats with late teens that have moved to Adelaide.  Let me know if this is you! Thanks Kym

      Hello Forum..
      This topic is mainly for 489 visa applicants, i.e. those in the process of applying or have already applied and received a grant or are / have already landed in SA. 
      Migrating is not easy as it requires a lot of planning, courage to make things work out as desired. Moving with a family with young children is not easy and when the time eventually comes one develops cold feet and is lost in transition as there are load's of things to keep in mind.
      Here I would request all applicants to share their thoughts on some of the best practices, lessons learnt, tips, do's and don't's that are to be followed during:
      the application process  after grant is received pre-landing preparations  post landing  experiences and lessons learnt  
      This would definitely help a lot of migrants who have many thoughts and questions going on in their mind and it would be great to lend our moral support to who ever needs it 
      Thank you all and I hope you all take the time to contribute as this forum has been stupendous in helping others!  God bless and all the best to all those who have migrated or planning to migrate.

      Hi Guys,
      Well by God's grace things seem to be progressing well and hopefully if we clear our Health Check then we seem to inch closer in acquiring a 489 Visa  and considering it would take 5 to 6 months i.e. May - June we should have our visa in our hand. If things go as per plan then we intend doing our landing in Sept - Oct 2018 but I have many queries on how to go about it? 
      We are a family of 4 (2 children aged 9 and 4)
      which suburb in Adelaide do we decide to live in and what should be the criteria while choosing a suburb ? (close proximity to the city, schools, public transport etc) considering that there wont be any income when we reach, what is the monthly outgoing should we expect? We plan to rent  2 bedroom apartment / house. can my children get admissions in a government school? ( i know it wont be free as I am on a 489 visa) and what would the fee structure be like? (Grade 6 and Grade 1) what is the best way to scout for jobs? appreciate if anyone can share a template of CV's that are normally followed. are rental properties normally furnished or unfurnished?  can we get a short term rental where we can be flexible to move out once we decide on the suburb we want to live in? I would also appreciate any additional info that you think can be useful, like from your own experiences, lessons learnt, do's and don'ts etc.
      Thank you.

      I'm a 29 year old male from Leicester, and I am emigrating to Adelaide in October this year.
      I was just wondering if anyone knew of any Football (soccer) Supporters Clubs in the Adelaide area. In particular any Leicester City supporters?
      My girlfriend and I are moving over and won't really know anybody else in the city, so thought it might be a good idea to see if there any supporters over there.
      Even if you don't happen to support Leicester City, would still be good to meet people who actually like watching proper football and not AFL! (not that there's anything wrong with AFL but I'll be having withdrawal symptoms if I don't watch any football....)
      Any advice or pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
      If you don't like football but would still be interested in meeting up to socialise and make friends, drop us a PM.
