-Over the past weeks,

-we've sent Welsh learners...

0:00:320:00:36

-..to farms and factories,

-to camps and castles...

0:00:360:00:40

-..to wait at tables,

-discover treasures...

0:00:410:00:44

-..prepare food

-and care for animals.

0:00:440:00:48

-Their challenge

-was to use nothing but Welsh...

0:00:480:00:52

-..and understand different accents

-for two days at busy workplaces.

0:00:520:00:57

-Welcome to Profiad Gwaith.

0:00:570:00:59

-Use the website and the app if you

-need help to follow the programme.

0:01:000:01:05

-And don't forget the subtitles,

-of course.

0:01:050:01:08

-I'm Neil Rowlands.

0:01:090:01:10

-I'm from Cardiff

-but I now live in Swansea.

0:01:110:01:14

-I work at Swansea University...

0:01:140:01:16

-..doing clerical, administrative

-and computer work.

0:01:160:01:21

-I've been learning Welsh

-for four years now.

0:01:210:01:25

-It's been a great journey, really.

0:01:250:01:29

-I decided to learn the language...

0:01:290:01:32

-..so that I could feel

-like a proper Welshman.

0:01:320:01:36

-The Swansea area

-is an arid area for the language.

0:01:380:01:42

-Welsh speakers in Swansea and the

-Gower are some 4% of the population.

0:01:420:01:48

-I don't get many opportunities

-to use the language.

0:01:480:01:52

-I'm glad to come to Llandeilo

-and to be in an area...

0:01:530:01:58

-..where I can use my Welsh first,

-before English.

0:01:580:02:03

-I think I'll be doing

-lots of different things.

0:02:040:02:09

-Arranging flowers,

-making deliveries...

0:02:090:02:12

-..talking to customers

-and answering the phone.

0:02:120:02:16

-I'm looking forward

-to the process...

0:02:160:02:19

-..and to enjoying

-my two days, really.

0:02:190:02:22

-But where will Neil be working?

0:02:230:02:25

-My name's Nia and I own Pinc,

-the flower shop in Llandeilo.

0:02:260:02:32

-I offer a floral service

-for everyone locally...

0:02:320:02:35

-..and further afield.

0:02:350:02:37

-We specialize in wedding flowers,

-we serve the funeral industry...

0:02:370:02:42

-..and we also arrange flowers

-for local hotels and pubs...

0:02:420:02:47

-..coffee shops and some hair salons.

0:02:470:02:51

-The shop opened in 2005.

0:02:530:02:57

-By now, we're in the unit

-next to Heavenly...

0:02:570:03:00

-..which sells chocolate

-and ice cream.

0:03:000:03:03

-Both shops complement each other.

0:03:030:03:06

-Welsh is very important

-in this area.

0:03:070:03:10

-There are two Welsh-medium schools

-in the area.

0:03:100:03:14

-I'd like everyone who works in

-the shop to be able to speak Welsh.

0:03:140:03:18

-It's very important.

0:03:180:03:20

-A lot of people

-have moved into the area.

0:03:200:03:23

-Fair play,

-we have a lot of learners.

0:03:230:03:26

-When they come in,

-we always greet them in Welsh...

0:03:260:03:30

-..to show that we speak Welsh

-and that we're here to help them.

0:03:300:03:35

-Hello, Nia. I'm Neil

-and I'm here to do work experience.

0:03:380:03:41

-Welcome to Pinc, Neil.

0:03:410:03:42

-Welcome to Pinc, Neil.

-

-Thank you very much.

0:03:420:03:44

-Have you worked with flowers before?

0:03:440:03:46

-Have you worked with flowers before?

-

-No, never.

0:03:460:03:49

-Have you bought flowers before?

0:03:490:03:51

-Have you bought flowers before?

-

-I have, yes.

0:03:510:03:52

-But I haven't arranged flowers.

0:03:520:03:54

-We'll have two happy days together.

0:03:550:03:57

-We'll have two happy days together.

-

-Definitely. Thank you.

0:03:570:03:59

-Today, we're preparing a vase

-for the Cawdor Hotel.

0:04:020:04:06

-They expect a fresh vase of flowers

-from us every week.

0:04:060:04:10

-Lovely.

0:04:110:04:12

-The theme varies every week.

0:04:120:04:15

-But I know that the manageress

-has her favourite colours.

0:04:150:04:21

-The best way to start

-is to measure the top of the vase.

0:04:210:04:26

-Bring it back to the edge

-and measure.

0:04:260:04:30

-Cut where you think it's important.

0:04:310:04:33

-Don't cut the stems too short, OK?

0:04:340:04:37

-We can always cut them again

-if they're too long!

0:04:370:04:41

-I'll cut this here.

0:04:410:04:43

-Cut straight?

0:04:430:04:45

-No, at an angle.

0:04:450:04:47

-That lets the stem

-draw up more water...

0:04:470:04:50

-..because the surface area

-is bigger.

0:04:510:04:54

-Watch your fingers.

0:04:550:04:56

-OK, and take the leaves

-off here, and maybe...

0:04:560:05:01

-Yes, remove most of the leaves.

0:05:010:05:04

-Great. And put them in.

0:05:050:05:07

-Oops, sorry.

0:05:080:05:09

-Oops, sorry.

-

-That's fine.

0:05:090:05:10

-And put them against the back.

0:05:110:05:13

-I enjoyed it very much.

0:05:140:05:16

-I didn't really know the principles

-behind flower arranging.

0:05:160:05:20

-It was nice to learn them.

0:05:200:05:23

-In future, I'm sure I'll be able

-to arrange flowers myself.

0:05:230:05:27

-If I buy flowers for my mother

-or for Christmas...

0:05:270:05:31

-..I can arrange them myself.

0:05:310:05:33

-..I can arrange them myself.

-

-Right, very good.

0:05:330:05:35

-So far, so good.

0:05:350:05:36

-Right, thank you.

0:05:360:05:38

-Have you noticed

-that we have three hydrangeas?

0:05:380:05:42

-Three hydrangeas.

0:05:420:05:43

-And three blooms.

0:05:440:05:45

-And three blooms.

-

-Three blooms, OK.

0:05:450:05:46

-Not four, and not two.

0:05:460:05:48

-Oh, right. So, odd numbers?

0:05:480:05:50

-Yes, it's important.

0:05:500:05:51

-Yes, it's important.

-

-Why?

0:05:510:05:53

-It's a biblical thing, originally.

0:05:530:05:55

-The Father, the Son

-and the Holy Ghost...

0:05:560:05:59

-..or the five saints.

0:05:590:06:01

-But numbers

-like three, five and seven...

0:06:010:06:05

-..give you a better arrangement

-at the end.

0:06:050:06:09

-I could never have imagined that.

0:06:090:06:13

-He's a very pleasant person.

0:06:130:06:15

-He's talkative

-and asks plenty of questions.

0:06:150:06:18

-He's obviously keen to learn.

0:06:190:06:22

-That's a very good thing

-for work experience.

0:06:230:06:26

-It's difficult sometimes

-to transfer a skill to someone else.

0:06:260:06:30

-But Neil has that interest

-and he wants to do his best.

0:06:300:06:34

-I'm very happy,

-at the moment, anyway!

0:06:340:06:37

-Well done, Neil.

0:06:380:06:39

-Measure and cut.

0:06:390:06:40

-Measure and cut.

-

-You can come to work here!

0:06:400:06:42

-How did you start

-to be able to do this job so well?

0:06:440:06:48

-I started when I was about 13,

-as a YFC member.

0:06:480:06:52

-Right, OK.

0:06:530:06:54

-Every year,

-they hold a competition.

0:06:540:06:59

-The Carmarthenshire rally.

0:07:000:07:01

-Every year,

-I was chosen to do the flowers.

0:07:020:07:04

-That's how I started.

0:07:040:07:06

-But my mother

-was also interested in it.

0:07:060:07:09

-I opened a flower shop.

0:07:100:07:11

-It's sad, thinking about it.

0:07:120:07:14

-I lost my parents,

-and it made me think.

0:07:140:07:17

-Their deaths made me think

-how short life is.

0:07:170:07:23

-I decided to go for it and opened

-a flower shop twelve years ago.

0:07:230:07:28

-Well done. Ten out of ten.

0:07:280:07:30

-Special.

0:07:300:07:31

-Next, Neil spends time

-at the reception desk.

0:07:320:07:35

-It's another important part

-of running a flower shop.

0:07:350:07:39

-I'm Catrin.

0:07:390:07:40

-Hello, Catrin. I'm Neil.

0:07:400:07:42

-I'm Nia's daughter.

0:07:420:07:45

-I'm responsible for the reception.

0:07:460:07:48

-Welcoming customers,

-answering the phone...

0:07:480:07:51

-..pricing the flowers and so on.

0:07:520:07:54

-I'll show you

-how we price the flowers first.

0:07:560:07:59

-We get a slip

-from the flower wholesaler.

0:07:590:08:04

-We put those prices on cards

-and attach them to all the flowers.

0:08:040:08:08

-You might get to know

-some of the flowers this way.

0:08:080:08:11

-Do you know most of the customers?

0:08:120:08:14

-Are they regulars?

0:08:140:08:16

-Local people, although we do get

-phone calls from further afield.

0:08:160:08:21

-They've seen our website

-or seen us on Facebook or Instagram.

0:08:210:08:25

-Some we don't know, but we know most

-of those who come into the shop...

0:08:250:08:30

-..because the business has been

-going in Llandeilo for a while now.

0:08:300:08:34

-Cassa lily.

0:08:350:08:38

-Sorry, c-a-s...

0:08:390:08:40

-Sorry, c-a-s...

-

-S-a. Double s.

0:08:400:08:42

-Double s.

0:08:420:08:44

-They're 5.

0:08:440:08:46

-Sorry, 1?

0:08:460:08:48

-Sorry, 1?

-

-No, 5.

0:08:480:08:49

-Mam wouldn't be happy

-if we sold them for a pound!

0:08:490:08:53

-Yes, it's important to know

-the difference between 1 and 5...

0:08:530:08:57

-..as Neil runs the shop for a while.

0:08:580:09:00

-Hello, how are you?

0:09:010:09:02

-Hello, how are you?

-

-Good morning, I'm Neil.

0:09:020:09:03

-I'm working here for two days.

0:09:040:09:06

-Are you enjoying it?

0:09:060:09:08

-Are you enjoying it?

-

-Yes, it's been a great experience.

0:09:080:09:10

-I'd like to order flowers.

0:09:100:09:13

-I have a shop in the town.

0:09:130:09:16

-I'd like flowers

-to put in the window.

0:09:160:09:19

-In the window, OK.

0:09:190:09:20

-What kind of flowers

-do you usually buy?

0:09:210:09:25

-Do you order a set bouquet?

0:09:250:09:29

-Or do Nia and Catrin

-choose on your behalf?

0:09:290:09:32

-I usually tell them the colours.

0:09:330:09:35

-The seasonal colours in the shop

-are yellow and mustard.

0:09:360:09:42

-I'd like those colours

-in the bouquet.

0:09:420:09:47

-OK, with a little white and green

-to bring the yellow out, perhaps.

0:09:470:09:53

-Yes, yes.

0:09:530:09:54

-Yes, yes.

-

-OK.

0:09:540:09:55

-I think Neil's very keen to learn.

0:09:550:09:58

-He asks a lot of questions.

0:09:580:10:00

-That's a good sign

-that he wants to learn.

0:10:000:10:03

-He's pleasant

-and he took the orders.

0:10:030:10:06

-He asked about colours,

-the type of flowers, the occasion...

0:10:060:10:10

-..if they were to be collected

-or delivered.

0:10:100:10:12

-He got everything right.

0:10:130:10:14

-By when do you want the flowers?

0:10:150:10:17

-Tomorrow, if possible.

0:10:170:10:18

-Tomorrow, if possible.

-

-I'm sure it will be.

0:10:180:10:20

-We try to change the window display

-once a week.

0:10:200:10:23

-Once I get the flowers, I can put

-clothes in the window to match them.

0:10:230:10:29

-Do you want us

-to bring the flowers to you?

0:10:290:10:33

-Or will you collect them yourself?

0:10:340:10:36

-Or will you collect them yourself?

-

-It'd be great if you could deliver.

0:10:360:10:38

-Of course.

0:10:380:10:39

-We'll see you in the morning

-with perfect flowers, I'm sure.

0:10:400:10:44

-Thank you. Ta-ra.

0:10:440:10:47

-Delivering flowers is a popular

-and important service as well.

0:10:470:10:52

-That's Neil's next job.

0:10:520:10:54

-So, we're delivering this vase

-to the Cawdor Hotel down the road.

0:10:550:10:59

-You're going, not us.

-This is your job.

0:11:000:11:03

-Right, OK.

0:11:030:11:04

-You have to ask for Mary Lewis.

0:11:040:11:07

-You have to ask for Mary Lewis.

-

-Mary Lewis, right.

0:11:070:11:08

-She's the hotel manageress.

0:11:090:11:10

-Be safe, watch the road,

-and don't be too long.

0:11:110:11:14

-OK, no problem.

0:11:150:11:16

-Lovely. Thank you, Nia.

0:11:160:11:18

-Hiya, how are you?

0:11:340:11:35

-Lovely. Are you alright?

0:11:350:11:37

-It's nice to meet you.

0:11:370:11:38

-It's nice to meet you.

-

-And you.

0:11:380:11:39

-We've brought new flowers for you.

0:11:390:11:42

-We've brought new flowers for you.

-

-Great.

0:11:420:11:43

-Shall I put it on the shelf?

0:11:430:11:44

-Shall I put it on the shelf?

-

-There, yes.

0:11:440:11:45

-What have we got today?

0:11:450:11:47

-We've got roses, of course,

-lisianthus, hydrangea...

0:11:470:11:52

-..and bear grass.

0:11:530:11:54

-Fantastic.

0:11:540:11:55

-Yes, they're lovely.

0:11:550:11:57

-Did you arrange this today?

0:11:580:11:59

-Yes, it was my first task.

0:12:000:12:03

-Well done. With Nia, next door.

0:12:040:12:05

-She showed me how to arrange them,

-and that's what I did.

0:12:060:12:10

-You've done a good job.

0:12:110:12:12

-You've done a good job.

-

-Well, you know...

0:12:120:12:14

-Nia taught me well.

0:12:140:12:15

-Nia taught me well.

-

-She has, and in Welsh.

0:12:150:12:17

-Yes, in Welsh.

0:12:170:12:19

-Her Welsh is really good.

0:12:190:12:21

-You'll learn a lot with Nia.

0:12:210:12:23

-About flowers and language.

0:12:230:12:26

-About flowers and language.

-

-And language too, yes.

0:12:260:12:28

-Thank you,

-and good luck with your Welsh.

0:12:280:12:31

-Thanks. It's been a pleasure.

0:12:310:12:33

-It seems that everyone in Llandeilo

-wants flowers today.

0:12:350:12:39

-Very well, Nia.

0:12:390:12:40

-This time, you're going to the

-Cottage on the A40 to Carmarthen.

0:12:410:12:45

-It's a pub.

0:12:460:12:48

-In through the door,

-there's a table.

0:12:480:12:50

-Put the flowers in the middle,

-right in front of the mirror.

0:12:510:12:54

-OK.

0:12:550:12:56

-No drinking!

0:12:560:12:57

-No drinking!

-

-No drinking at all.

0:12:570:12:58

-You're working early tomorrow.

0:12:580:13:01

-You're working early tomorrow.

-

-Early? Oh, right.

0:13:010:13:02

-No problem at all.

0:13:020:13:03

-No problem at all.

-

-Great. Ta-ra. Drive safely.

0:13:030:13:05

-Good afternoon.

0:13:220:13:23

-Good afternoon.

0:13:230:13:24

-How are you?

0:13:240:13:25

-How are you?

-

-Delivery from Pinc, is it?

0:13:250:13:27

-We've got lilies for you.

0:13:290:13:31

-My favourites.

0:13:310:13:32

-Are you busy in Pinc today?

0:13:340:13:35

-Are you busy in Pinc today?

-

-Fairly busy, yes.

0:13:350:13:36

-I've got deliveries here

-and two other places in Llandeilo.

0:13:370:13:42

-Here's a well-deserved drink.

0:13:440:13:45

-Here's a well-deserved drink.

-

-Lovely, thank you very much.

0:13:450:13:47

-I've earned this today!

0:13:470:13:49

-Exactly. Another one after that.

0:13:490:13:51

-Maybe. I'm sure I'll have time.

-Hello? Neil Rowlands.

0:13:570:13:59

-Hello? Neil Rowlands.

-

-Hiya, Nia here.

0:13:590:14:00

-I'm at the Cottage, Nia.

0:14:010:14:03

-Neil, have you had a drink?

0:14:040:14:06

-I'll be back soon.

0:14:060:14:08

-I won't be very long at all.

0:14:090:14:12

-OK, Neil.

-Remember, it's a big day tomorrow.

0:14:120:14:15

-Funeral wreaths and deliveries.

0:14:150:14:18

-The signal's going...

0:14:180:14:20

-I can't really hear you.

0:14:200:14:21

-I can't really hear you.

-

-Neil?

0:14:210:14:22

-Oh, oh, she's gone.

0:14:220:14:25

-Oh, no phone signal again.

0:14:260:14:28

-Can I have the menu, please, Donna?

0:14:280:14:30

-Can I have the menu, please, Donna?

-

-Of course.

0:14:300:14:31

-Lovely.

0:14:310:14:32

-Lovely.

-

-You're here for the night, are you?

0:14:320:14:34

-I hope not!

0:14:350:14:36

-After the break, sorting a vanload

-of flowers and more deliveries.

0:14:360:14:41

-Make sure that side faces down.

0:14:410:14:44

0:14:440:14:44

-*

0:14:470:14:47

-Welcome back to Profiad Gwaith...

0:14:470:14:49

-..where learners get the chance...

0:14:500:14:52

-..to work for two days

-and speak only Welsh.

0:14:530:14:58

-This time, Neil Rowlands

-is at Pinc florists in Llandeilo.

0:14:580:15:02

-He's already learnt

-how to arrange flowers...

0:15:030:15:07

-..and how to deliver them.

0:15:070:15:10

-..and how to deliver them.

-

-Good morning.

0:15:100:15:12

-Did you have a nice night?

0:15:120:15:15

-Did you have a nice night?

-

-Yes, lovely, thank you.

0:15:150:15:16

-I hope you're ready for a busy day.

0:15:160:15:19

-We have funeral flowers to deliver.

0:15:200:15:22

-Then you'll deliver flowers to Caryl

-Rig Out, whose order you took.

0:15:220:15:27

-Our flower orders for today

-will be arriving soon.

0:15:280:15:33

-They'll need to be put in water

-and sorted as quickly as we can.

0:15:330:15:37

-I hope you're ready for a busy day.

0:15:370:15:40

-What have we got here?

0:15:420:15:44

-Seasonal colours.

0:15:460:15:47

-Orange germini.

0:15:480:15:50

-Very pretty.

0:15:500:15:51

-Underneath

-is quite an unusual flower.

0:15:520:15:56

-Celosia.

0:15:570:15:58

-OK?

0:15:580:15:59

-No scent.

0:15:590:16:00

-These are popular with hotels

-and shops in general...

0:16:010:16:06

-..because they're different.

0:16:060:16:09

-We had a new delivery of flowers.

0:16:090:16:13

-Over 150 stems in all.

0:16:140:16:16

-Neil put them all in water

-and conditioned them.

0:16:160:16:20

-He's been a big help this morning.

0:16:200:16:23

-How often do you get new deliveries?

0:16:240:16:28

-Every day?

0:16:280:16:29

-Yes.

0:16:290:16:30

-From Monday to Friday.

0:16:300:16:32

-From Monday to Friday.

-

-Right, OK.

0:16:320:16:33

-Some come directly from Holland.

0:16:330:16:36

-Directly from Holland?

0:16:360:16:38

-We order online.

0:16:390:16:41

-So, you choose all the flowers.

0:16:410:16:43

-We try to create

-a story out of flowers.

0:16:430:16:46

-As you can see, today, we've chosen

-orange and green flowers.

0:16:460:16:51

-It's now late October.

0:16:510:16:54

-Is it difficult...

0:16:540:16:56

-..to choose the flowers

-that you hope to sell?

0:16:570:17:01

-You try to order flowers...

0:17:020:17:04

-..so that those who've placed orders

-with you get what they want.

0:17:040:17:08

-You also want to buy flowers

-that are seasonal.

0:17:090:17:12

-And you also want to buy flowers

-that are different.

0:17:120:17:16

-You have to choose

-from three different classes.

0:17:160:17:19

-It takes years of experience...

0:17:200:17:24

-..to get it right.

0:17:250:17:26

-Right, Neil.

0:17:290:17:31

-Now I want you to prepare

-the flowers for Rig Out.

0:17:310:17:35

-Caryl came in yesterday.

0:17:350:17:38

-She's changing her window,

-and you took the order.

0:17:380:17:42

-She wants green and yellow...

0:17:420:17:45

-..and we'll add a touch

-of orange too, as it's seasonal.

0:17:450:17:49

-We'll also use poppy seed heads,

-which signify the onset of autumn.

0:17:490:17:53

-What colour will these become?

0:17:540:17:56

-What colour will these become?

-

-They stay like that.

0:17:560:17:58

-They don't open.

0:17:590:18:00

-They have bloomed

-and have closed.

0:18:000:18:02

-Oh, right.

0:18:030:18:04

-I'm the kind of person

-who learns by doing things.

0:18:040:18:07

-Nia told me how to arrange

-the flowers yesterday.

0:18:080:18:12

-By doing it, I can see how it works.

0:18:130:18:15

-Well done. You're getting into it.

0:18:170:18:20

-Throwing leaves on the floor

-is the mark of a professional.

0:18:200:18:24

-The only thing

-with something like that...

0:18:260:18:29

-..is making sure

-there are no leaves in the water.

0:18:300:18:33

-He was turning the vase

-and looking at his work.

0:18:330:18:36

-He also knew the flowers' names,

-so he's making excellent progress.

0:18:370:18:42

-We have one more.

0:18:420:18:44

-I'd look at that again

-and ask if it's good enough.

0:18:450:18:48

-It's...

0:18:490:18:50

-No?

0:18:500:18:51

-This is another thing to learn.

0:18:520:18:54

-Remove the petals and leaves.

0:18:540:18:56

-Oh!

0:18:570:18:58

-Then put it in like that.

0:19:000:19:01

-It creates interest.

0:19:030:19:06

-That is interesting.

0:19:060:19:08

-It's been great to do it in Welsh,

-talking to Nia all morning.

0:19:090:19:14

-I've also picked up

-some Carmarthenshire dialect.

0:19:150:19:19

-"Odi, odi."

0:19:190:19:20

-Instead of saying "Ydw" or "Ydy"

-or "Ydyn", they say, "Odi, odi."

0:19:210:19:26

-I can take that into class...

0:19:270:19:30

-..and forget about

-the different types of yes.

0:19:300:19:34

-"Odi, odi" suits everything!

0:19:350:19:37

-I'm sure Caryl will be delighted.

0:19:370:19:40

-I'm sure as well.

0:19:400:19:41

-Thank you, Nia. It's been nice.

0:19:420:19:43

-Thank you, Nia. It's been nice.

-

-Thank you, Neil.

0:19:430:19:44

-Good morning, Caryl.

0:19:500:19:51

-How are you today?

0:19:520:19:53

-How are you today?

-

-Fine, thanks.

0:19:530:19:54

-These are your flowers.

0:19:540:19:56

-Are they OK?

0:19:560:19:57

-Are they OK?

-

-Just what I wanted.

0:19:570:19:58

-Rust and yellow.

0:19:590:20:01

-It'll be in the window later.

0:20:010:20:03

-So, you're going

-to change the clothes...

0:20:040:20:08

-..to reflect the flowers.

0:20:080:20:10

-Yes, that's right.

0:20:110:20:12

-They're the fashionable colours

-for the winter.

0:20:120:20:17

-They're great, and they'll be

-in the window this afternoon.

0:20:180:20:22

-I hope they help you

-to sell more clothes.

0:20:220:20:25

-I hope so. Thank you.

0:20:250:20:27

-I hope so. Thank you.

-

-Another happy customer.

0:20:270:20:29

-Of course, flowers are suitable

-for all kinds of occasions...

0:20:290:20:33

-..some happy, some sad.

0:20:330:20:35

-Did she pay you?

0:20:360:20:37

-Did she pay you?

-

-Sorry?

0:20:370:20:38

-"Dalodd hi?"

0:20:380:20:39

-"Dalodd hi?"

-

-Did she pay you?

0:20:390:20:40

-Oh, not yet.

0:20:400:20:42

-I'll go back.

0:20:420:20:44

-Go back to see her.

0:20:440:20:45

-We can't give people free flowers.

0:20:460:20:48

-We can't give people free flowers.

-

-No, business doesn't work like that.

0:20:480:20:50

-But thanks for taking them over.

0:20:500:20:52

-But thanks for taking them over.

-

-No problem.

0:20:520:20:53

-As you know,

-we have a funeral today.

0:20:530:20:56

-We have to finish this wreath

-for the coffin.

0:20:570:21:00

-On every bouquet that goes out,

-the oasis must be concealed.

0:21:000:21:06

-Can you finish this off for me?

0:21:070:21:10

-If you can see the oasis at all...

0:21:100:21:12

-..cut some lisianthus

-and fill in the gaps for me.

0:21:130:21:16

-Yes, OK.

0:21:170:21:18

-One flower...

0:21:180:21:20

-Cut them quite short, yes.

0:21:200:21:23

-The shorter the flower,

-the more of the oasis you cover.

0:21:250:21:30

-There are some gaps in the back.

0:21:320:21:35

-Well done.

0:21:390:21:40

-So, funerals must be

-a part of your core business.

0:21:410:21:46

-Unfortunately, yes, they are.

0:21:470:21:49

-That's one certainty,

-we all have to die.

0:21:500:21:53

-A display like this

-really helps people.

0:21:530:21:57

-It creates beauty

-in a difficult situation.

0:21:570:22:01

-It's the final gift

-that people give.

0:22:020:22:06

-It's crucial that everyone

-has what they need on the coffin.

0:22:060:22:10

-Definitely, yes.

0:22:110:22:12

-Right, Catrin's waiting for you.

0:22:120:22:14

-It's time to deliver the flowers.

0:22:150:22:17

-Go to Bethel chapel of rest at the

-bottom of Llandeilo to meet Keith.

0:22:170:22:23

-Right, OK, I'll take them there.

0:22:230:22:25

-Right, OK, I'll take them there.

-

-Great. Thank you.

0:22:250:22:26

-Hello, Keith.

0:22:360:22:37

-Hello, Keith.

-

-How are you?

0:22:370:22:38

-This is Neil.

0:22:380:22:40

-How are you, Neil?

0:22:400:22:41

-How are you, Neil?

-

-It's nice to meet you.

0:22:410:22:43

-Neil's with us on work experience.

0:22:430:22:45

-He's learning Welsh,

-so he's practising his Welsh too.

0:22:450:22:50

-How's it going?

0:22:500:22:51

-Yes, it's going well.

0:22:510:22:53

-Catrin and Nia have been great.

0:22:530:22:55

-I've had a chance

-to use lots of Welsh.

0:22:560:22:59

-Hearing lots of Welsh.

0:22:590:23:00

-I've learnt a lot.

0:23:010:23:02

-These are the flowers.

0:23:030:23:05

-Nia told me that the man who died

-came from Poland.

0:23:060:23:11

-We've used colours that are

-sympathetic to that, really,

0:23:110:23:16

-Neil helped with the flowers today.

0:23:160:23:18

-Neil helped with the flowers today.

-

-Oh, very good.

0:23:180:23:19

-He's played his part.

0:23:190:23:21

-Would you like to place the flowers

-on the coffin?

0:23:220:23:25

-Thank you.

0:23:250:23:26

-Make sure that side faces down.

0:23:340:23:37

-The longest side faces down.

0:23:370:23:38

-The longest side faces down.

-

-Turn it around.

0:23:380:23:39

-Turn it around. OK?

0:23:390:23:42

-In the middle and it's fine.

0:23:430:23:45

-In the middle.

0:23:460:23:47

-I can see that.

0:23:470:23:48

-There we are.

0:23:500:23:51

-Thank you.

0:23:520:23:53

-Hello.

0:23:590:24:00

-Hello.

-

-Hello, Nia.

0:24:000:24:01

-Did everything go alright?

0:24:010:24:03

-Did everything go alright?

-

-Yes, it was fine.

0:24:030:24:04

-Keith liked the flowers.

0:24:040:24:07

-Keith liked the flowers.

-

-Were the flowers alright?

0:24:070:24:09

-Yes, there was no mess.

0:24:090:24:12

-Did you put them on the coffin?

0:24:120:24:15

-Did you put them on the coffin?

-

-Yes, Neil put them on the coffin.

0:24:150:24:18

-The long end the right way,

-so it was all OK.

0:24:180:24:21

-Special.

0:24:220:24:23

-Have you enjoyed it here?

0:24:230:24:25

-Have you enjoyed it here?

-

-Yes, it's been great.

0:24:250:24:26

-I have to thank you, Nia,

-and you, Catrin.

0:24:260:24:30

-You've been stars.

0:24:300:24:33

-I've learnt a lot

-about the language, the shop...

0:24:330:24:37

-..and about flowers,

-and I've used my Welsh a lot.

0:24:370:24:43

-You've been a star too.

0:24:430:24:45

-I enjoyed having Neil in the shop,

-and he was great to work with.

0:24:460:24:50

-He has helped a lot

-and speaks Welsh with confidence.

0:24:500:24:54

-He was fantastic to work with.

0:24:540:24:56

-He's done much more

-than I usually do!

0:24:560:24:59

-He's arranged flowers,

-which is more than I've done.

0:24:590:25:02

-He has the skills.

0:25:030:25:04

-It's been my ambition to work

-through the medium of Welsh.

0:25:050:25:09

-Now, I have the confidence to live

-and socialize using only Welsh.

0:25:090:25:14

-Good morning, Pinc.

0:25:140:25:16

-It's hard to come into

-a shop like this...

0:25:160:25:19

-..and show skills and confidence

-right from the off.

0:25:190:25:23

-Neil has taken on everything

-with confidence.

0:25:230:25:26

-He's been polite with customers...

0:25:260:25:29

-..and having a person like him here

-made my life a lot easier.

0:25:290:25:34

-Next time I buy flowers,

-I'll have a better idea what to buy.

0:25:350:25:41

-I might even make my own bouquet.

0:25:410:25:44

-Any time he wants a job at Pinc,

-I'm sure we can agree terms.

0:25:440:25:48

-I look forward to coming back

-to see Nia and Catrin...

0:25:480:25:52

-..and to have a cuppa

-or afternoon tea.

0:25:520:25:54

-Thank you very much.

0:25:550:25:56

-Thank you very much.

-

-Great.

0:25:560:25:57

-We've met six learners

-at six workplaces.

0:26:000:26:03

-They've all successfully spent

-two days speaking nothing but Welsh.

0:26:040:26:08

-Congratulations to them all.

0:28:120:28:18

-What is wrong with you?

0:28:190:28:20

-What is wrong with you?

-

-..play in the mud...

0:28:200:28:22

-..fall into the water...

0:28:240:28:27

-Oh, dear!

0:28:270:28:29

-..and learn Welsh.

0:28:290:28:31

-..and learn Welsh.

-

-# Turn and turn our hands #

0:28:310:28:33

-During the next hour,

-I'll take you behind the scenes.

0:28:330:28:39

-Welcome to [email protected]

-Tu Ol I'r Llen.

0:28:390:28:43

-I'm Ashok Ahir and I was a finalist

-in Welsh Learner Of The Year 2012.

0:28:430:28:48

-Originally from Wolverhampton...

0:28:510:28:54

-..Ashok lives in this house

-with Manon, his wife...

0:28:540:28:57

-..and their children,

-Maya, Noa and Osian.

0:28:580:29:01

-Ashok, thank you for the welcome

-to your wonderful home.

0:29:040:29:08

-We last met on the [email protected] set.

-Did you enjoy it?

0:29:090:29:12

-Yes, it was

-quite a special experience.

0:29:130:29:15

-Not just because I got to work

-with people like you...

0:29:160:29:19

-..but also because

-I got to go behind the camera.

0:29:190:29:23

-I'm used to working behind

-the camera but not in front of it.

0:29:230:29:27

-It was interesting to be behind

-and in front of the camera.

0:29:270:29:32

-It was also great to be part

-of a series for fellow learners.

0:29:320:29:36

-Why did you learn Welsh

-and when did you do that?

0:29:380:29:43

-My wife comes from Aberystwyth

-originally and she speaks Welsh.

0:29:430:29:49

-It wasn't really an option

-for me not to learn Welsh.

0:29:490:29:55

-Our eldest child

-is almost 13 years old...

0:29:550:30:00

-..so I decided about ten years ago

-that I had to try to learn Welsh.

0:30:010:30:07

-The time came when we decided

-to stop speaking English at home...

0:30:070:30:11

-..and make Welsh

-the language of our home.

0:30:120:30:15

-How did you do that?

0:30:160:30:17

-Do you have any tips for learners?

0:30:170:30:20

-You are the person

-who has to give that push.

0:30:200:30:22

-Everyone else in my wife's family

-speaks Welsh.

0:30:230:30:25

-I asked them not to turn to English

-when we had Sunday lunch together...

0:30:260:30:30

-..but to carry on speaking Welsh.

0:30:300:30:34

-Everyone accepted that.

-It wasn't a problem.

0:30:340:30:37

-If you don't give people a chance

-to do that, it won't happen.

0:30:380:30:42

-You, as a learner, must give them

-permission to carry on in Welsh.

0:30:420:30:46

-Was Learner Of The Year

-a good experience?

0:30:470:30:50

-Yes, and it was a chance to show

-I'd reached a certain level.

0:30:500:30:54

-That I was confident enough

-to speak Welsh in public.

0:30:540:30:57

-It's like a public declaration.

0:30:580:31:01

-I'm learning Welsh.

0:31:020:31:03

-Speak Welsh to me.

0:31:030:31:05

-People came up to me and said they

-had no idea I was learning Welsh.

0:31:060:31:10

-People I've known for 15 years.

0:31:110:31:14

-That was the biggest step of all.

0:31:150:31:17

-Tell me about your work.

0:31:170:31:19

-You were at the BBC for years.

0:31:190:31:21

-Yes, I used to be a journalist.

0:31:220:31:24

-I was head

-of the BBC Wales political unit...

0:31:250:31:29

-..for, gosh, a decade!

0:31:290:31:31

-Prior to that, I worked in London

-on programmes like Six O'Clock News.

0:31:310:31:36

-I mainly worked

-in the field of politics.

0:31:360:31:40

-You and Manon, your wife,

-now run your own company.

0:31:400:31:45

-Yes, we run a communication agency.

0:31:450:31:48

-We work with companies...

0:31:480:31:50

-..regarding how they communicate

-with the public...

0:31:500:31:54

-..with their clients,

-with their staff...

0:31:540:31:57

-..and with the government.

0:31:570:32:00

-Does the ability to speak different

-languages help you in your work?

0:32:000:32:05

-It helps to speak Welsh

-because we're a bilingual company.

0:32:050:32:09

-We help businesses

-and organizations...

0:32:090:32:13

-..to improve their Welsh.

0:32:130:32:16

-Thank you for the chat.

0:32:160:32:18

-Is it time to let me have a snoop

-around your house?

0:32:180:32:22

-Some other people in the house

-say you can't see their room...

0:32:220:32:26

-..but I might let you!

0:32:260:32:28

-Have you been cleaning?

0:32:280:32:29

-Have you been cleaning?

-

-I have.

0:32:290:32:30

-This hall is lovely,

-with all these original features.

0:32:370:32:43

-I take it the floor is original.

0:32:430:32:46

-Yes. It was one of the first things

-that caught my eye.

0:32:470:32:51

-It runs through

-the whole ground floor.

0:32:510:32:54

-We're very lucky.

0:32:540:32:57

-What about this wood?

0:32:580:33:00

-What about this wood?

-

-There's wood throughout the house.

0:33:000:33:03

-The wood you see here

-is original to the house...

0:33:050:33:10

-..when it was built

-in the early 1900s.

0:33:100:33:14

-Tell me about that picture.

0:33:140:33:16

-It's a piece of art

-from a southern Indian village.

0:33:170:33:22

-It depicts a scene...

0:33:230:33:26

-..where villagers are preparing

-a bride for her wedding.

0:33:260:33:30

-This is a nice lounge.

0:33:350:33:36

-Your family comes from the Punjab

-region of India originally.

0:33:380:33:43

-Where is that piece from?

0:33:440:33:46

-This was our wedding present

-from my brother.

0:33:470:33:51

-It's a Buddha's head.

0:33:510:33:53

-It's originally from Asia...

0:33:530:33:58

-..and it's been there

-since we moved into this house.

0:33:590:34:04

-These are old spice boxes

-from Indonesia.

0:34:040:34:08

-Wow!

0:34:090:34:10

-That's another picture from India.

0:34:100:34:14

-It's an original piece

-from Rajasthan.

0:34:140:34:17

-There are clues about India,

-and Punjab, through the house.

0:34:180:34:23

-We're on the first floor.

0:34:280:34:30

-What rooms are here?

0:34:300:34:31

-That's the boys' room.

0:34:320:34:34

-Manon and I sleep over here.

0:34:340:34:37

-Just through there is the bathroom.

0:34:380:34:41

-Beyond the bathroom

-is Maya's room...

0:34:420:34:45

-..and a guest bedroom.

0:34:450:34:47

-I also use it as a dressing room.

0:34:470:34:50

-My clothes are spread between

-upstairs, my bedroom and that room.

0:34:500:34:55

-What's on the top floor?

0:34:550:34:56

-What's on the top floor?

-

-An office and Manon's dressing room.

0:34:560:35:00

-Let's take a look.

0:35:000:35:02

-We're in the attic room.

0:35:090:35:11

-The bookshelves

-are full of travel guides.

0:35:110:35:15

-Have you seen a lot of the world?

0:35:150:35:17

-Have you seen a lot of the world?

-

-Yes, we've travelled a lot.

0:35:170:35:19

-We've travelled independently,

-through work, and together.

0:35:190:35:24

-We've visited lots of places.

0:35:240:35:26

-We'll take a break, so grab a cuppa.

0:35:270:35:29

-Join me in a few minutes

-to meet the rest of Ashok's family.

-Welcome back.

0:35:470:35:49

-I'm at home with Ashok Ahir

-and his family.

0:35:490:35:52

-How do you usually

-spend your Sundays?

0:35:520:35:55

-Like most people, we love to cook.

0:35:550:35:58

-Are you a good cook?

0:35:580:36:01

-I'm not sure about that

-but I enjoy it.

0:36:010:36:04

-I enjoy the experience

-of playing with food.

0:36:040:36:08

-There are lots of fresh ingredients

-there, so shall I be your sous-chef?

0:36:080:36:14

-If you'll be my sous-chef,

-I'll cook for you.

0:36:140:36:18

-Great. What shall we cook?

0:36:180:36:20

-A simple vegetable dish...

0:36:200:36:24

-..and aloo gobi,

-cauliflower and potatoes.

0:36:240:36:28

-Indian food is my favourite cuisine.

0:36:280:36:31

-We started

-by preparing the vegetables.

0:36:330:36:37

-Are Indian food

-and Punjabi food the same?

0:36:380:36:43

-If you dine

-in restaurants in Britain...

0:36:440:36:49

-..the majority of the dishes you eat

-are Punjabi.

0:36:500:36:55

-In Indian restaurants?

0:36:560:36:57

-In Indian restaurants?

-

-Yes.

0:36:570:36:58

-Take a masala, for example.

0:36:590:37:02

-The only people in India

-who make masala sauces...

0:37:030:37:07

-..are people in the north.

0:37:080:37:10

-Punjabis, in other words.

0:37:100:37:12

-When I cook a curry, I always start

-with onions, garlic and ginger.

0:37:120:37:17

-That's the base for any curry.

0:37:200:37:23

-I remember being in the kitchen

-when I was a child...

0:37:230:37:27

-..with my mother

-and my grandmother...

0:37:270:37:30

-..helping out with chopping onions

-or crushing chillies and ginger.

0:37:320:37:38

-I learnt by watching them.

0:37:400:37:42

-The smell I remember from back then

-is onions, garlic and ginger...

0:37:420:37:47

-..cooking with a bit of chilli.

0:37:480:37:50

-With the first step complete, Ashok

-added vegetables and cooked them.

0:37:520:37:57

-Meanwhile, some hungry mouths

-were waiting to be fed.

0:37:580:38:01

-Papa, I'm hungry!

0:38:020:38:05

-Wow!

0:38:060:38:07

-That looks wonderful.

0:38:080:38:10

-Papa speaks Punjabi with you.

0:38:130:38:18

-Mam speaks Welsh with you.

0:38:180:38:23

-What do you speak with each other?

0:38:230:38:25

-We speak Welsh

-and some Punjabi words...

0:38:260:38:28

-..which we were brought up with

-since we were little.

0:38:290:38:32

-We reply to Papa's Punjabi in Welsh.

0:38:330:38:36

-He answers us in Welsh or Punjabi.

0:38:360:38:39

-Teach me something simple

-in Punjabi.

0:38:400:38:44

-If you want to say 'my name is'...

0:38:450:38:48

-..you say 'merra nam hai'...

0:38:490:38:54

-..then your name.

0:38:540:38:55

-Merra nam hai Nia.

0:38:560:38:58

-How do you do?

0:38:580:38:59

-Merra nam hai Nia.

0:39:000:39:02

-Manon, while Ashok

-makes more chapatis...

0:39:130:39:17

-..tell me the story of how you met.

0:39:170:39:20

-Love at first sight?

0:39:200:39:21

-Love at first sight?

-

-No. Definitely not!

0:39:210:39:23

-We worked together

-in the BBC newsroom for years.

0:39:250:39:28

-We were both journalists.

0:39:280:39:30

-We were friends for a long time.

0:39:300:39:33

-I went to work in London for

-a few years and Ashok worked here.

0:39:330:39:38

-We didn't work in the same city

-until after we got married.

0:39:380:39:43

-He caught the train to London

-every Sunday night...

0:39:430:39:46

-..for the first year

-of our marriage.

0:39:470:39:49

-What about your wedding?

0:39:490:39:52

-What about your wedding?

-

-We had two wedding ceremonies.

0:39:520:39:54

-The first

-was a traditional Welsh ceremony...

0:39:540:39:57

-..but with a strong Indian flavour.

0:39:580:40:00

-It was held in my chapel

-in Aberystwyth.

0:40:000:40:03

-There were chillies on the windows

-in the flower arrangements.

0:40:030:40:08

-We included quite a few readings

-in the service.

0:40:080:40:12

-At some point

-during the wedding breakfast...

0:40:120:40:15

-..all the aunties on Ashok's side

-took over and they started to dance.

0:40:160:40:21

-They made their own music

-and started to sing.

0:40:210:40:25

-We had a jazz band, but they decided

-to ignore it for a while!

0:40:250:40:29

-We ended up with half an hour

-of jazz and half an hour of Bhangra.

0:40:300:40:34

-It was a mixture of both

-and it was fantastic fun.

0:40:340:40:38

-It was a blend of everything but it

-was really colourful and wonderful.

0:40:380:40:44

-Two wedding days? Perfect!

0:40:440:40:47

-Two wedding days? Perfect!

-

-Two outfits, mind you.

0:40:470:40:49

-Obviously!

0:40:500:40:51

-Full to bursting with tasty food,

-we went for a walk in the park.

0:40:540:40:58

-We're walking

-through Pontcanna Fields...

0:40:580:41:01

-..which are very close to your home.

0:41:020:41:04

-Yes - just down the hill.

0:41:050:41:06

-Do you come here often?

0:41:070:41:09

-Yes, we're here every weekend.

0:41:090:41:11

-The boys play rugby -

-one over there and one over here.

0:41:130:41:18

-They play for different clubs,

-so there's competition in the house.

0:41:180:41:23

-They're arch-rivals!

0:41:230:41:25

-Do you think Cardiff is a nice city?

0:41:270:41:31

-Yes, and that's one of the reasons

-we're bringing up our children here.

0:41:320:41:37

-It's a perfect city for families

-and also great for young people.

0:41:370:41:41

-I first came to Cardiff

-to study at the university.

0:41:420:41:45

-It's a brilliant city for students.

0:41:450:41:48

-There's plenty to do...

0:41:480:41:49

-..and plenty of places to go out

-without having to travel far.

0:41:500:41:54

-I didn't have a car when I was

-a student, so I walked everywhere.

0:41:540:41:58

-It's big enough...

0:41:580:42:00

-..but it's also small enough

-to have a community feel.

0:42:000:42:04

-Yes, and since my student days

-I've crossed the bridge...

0:42:040:42:08

-..from east to west Cardiff.

0:42:090:42:11

-When you live and work in Cardiff...

0:42:140:42:17

-..you see the city

-in a totally different light...

0:42:170:42:21

-..from your student days.

0:42:210:42:23

-It's nice to have a cuppa

-after our walk.

0:42:280:42:31

-Ashok, tell me

-about your original home.

0:42:320:42:35

-Wolverhampton.

0:42:350:42:37

-Like many who came to Britain,

-we all lived in one house.

0:42:380:42:43

-That was how it was.

0:42:440:42:45

-Then my parents,

-us as a family, moved out.

0:42:460:42:50

-We lived around the corner

-from my grandparents' house.

0:42:500:42:55

-Were you a large family?

0:42:550:42:56

-Were you a large family?

-

-I have two brothers and one sister.

0:42:560:42:59

-Do your parents

-still live in Wolverhampton?

0:42:590:43:03

-Yes, but they spend half their time

-in Wolverhampton and half in Punjab.

0:43:040:43:09

-Tell me about life out there.

0:43:090:43:12

-Do you visit regularly?

0:43:120:43:14

-Do you visit regularly?

-

-Yes, we go every other year.

0:43:140:43:16

-That's how it's been

-since we've had children.

0:43:160:43:20

-It's a bit strange

-because I left when I was three...

0:43:200:43:25

-..and I didn't go back

-until I was something like 27.

0:43:260:43:29

-But since then, I went every year...

0:43:290:43:32

-..then every other year

-with the children.

0:43:330:43:37

-That's what we aim for.

0:43:370:43:39

-Would you ever go back

-to live in India?

0:43:400:43:42

-Do you feel drawn there?

0:43:430:43:44

-Do you feel it's your home...

0:43:450:43:47

-..or is this your home?

0:43:480:43:50

-I have different elements of 'home'

-in different places...

0:43:500:43:54

-..but Cardiff is my home.

0:43:550:43:57

-Ashok, tell me what three things

-you'd save from a fire.

0:44:110:44:16

-The first item is in the corner.

0:44:170:44:19

-It's an old record player.

0:44:200:44:23

-It's a HMV model from the 1920s.

0:44:230:44:26

-I like it because

-it plays my old jazz 78s.

0:44:270:44:31

-I'm always on the lookout

-for more 78s...

0:44:310:44:34

-..but it plays the ones

-I do have perfectly.

0:44:340:44:37

-Has it been in your family

-since the 1920s?

0:44:430:44:46

-Well, it was a present

-from a family member.

0:44:470:44:51

-He found it on eBay

-and gave it to me!

0:44:510:44:53

-What's the second thing?

0:44:540:44:56

-It's a bit big and it's upstairs.

-dates back to Victorian times...

0:45:110:45:15

-at Nanteos mansion...

0:46:560:47:00
