If youre a person who wants to learn Welsh, this book is not for you. If youre a person whose first language is Welsh and you want to improve your spoken English, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, youre an English speaker whos due to visit South Wales, this book is definitely for you. A visitor to Wales will almost certainly have to converse with a local at some stage, and thats where the trouble may start. Ask for directions and youll be no better off than if theyd been given in Klingon. Youll probably assume that the person you spoke to answered you in Welsh, but in fact the person will actually have been speaking to you in Valleys-speak the non-standard English used in South Wales in everyday conversation. This language is far removed from the English that youll be used to, and hopefully these pages will ease your communication problems during your stay in the country. -- Y Lolfa
