The Welsh Rugby Union invited her to attend Tafwyl – a Welsh Language event in the heart of her home city – in last weekend – and as you can see from the video – Luchia enjoyed her day and even met the First Minister – who encouraged her to learn Hen Wlad Fy Nhadau in time for the Six Nations.
The Welsh Rugby Union hopes to film three items with Luchia by March – following her progress as she strives to learn her National Anthem – with a little help along the way. Luchia said:
“Being Welsh, I think it’s good to know our National Anthem and our native language. I think it’s amazing .”
Follow her journey over the coming months – and if you’re interested in learning Welsh, the Welsh Rugby Union will be working with Dysgu Cymraeg to offer an on-line taster session for all Welsh rugby fans before the Rugby World Cup in September.
