TWW pioneer “Teaching Welsh”

A pioneer Welsh programme by TWW was the series Camau Cyntaf presented by Miss Cassie Davies as an experiment in using television for teaching a language.

This was the first time, anywhere, that a TV company had made this particular use of its resources. Many different modern teaching techniques were used during this series by Miss Davies, who was formerly H.M. Inspector of Schools. A further series is in course of preparation.

Miss Cassie Davies says:

“The aim of this first series was to give non-Welsh speaking people some knowledge of the language, to help those who have a little knowledge to brush up their vocabulary and to help maintain the interest of those who speak the language fluently.”
