Eisteddfod: Welsh learner finalist Craig ab Iago

The Welsh learner of the year will be announced at the National Eisteddfod in Denbigh on Wednesday.

There are four finalists, including Craig ab Iago, from Llanllyfni, Gwynedd.

He was brought up on RAF bases across Europe and did not speak Welsh. When he returned to Wales for a family funeral he was reminded that he did not speak the same language as many of his extended family.

He told BBC Radio Wales it inspired him to study an intensive WLPAN course, and now he says learning Welsh has changed his life.
