Nia catches up with two women from the Rhondda who grew up in English speaking homes and learnt Welsh later in life.

Sian Sexton was shortlisted for the Welsh learners prize at this year's Eisteddfod. But while Sian started learning when she sent her children to Welsh medium school, it wasn't until the kids got older that really started applying herself.

One of Sian's teachers, Helen Prosser, has a combination of Sunday school and her neighbour, Mrs Morgan from Aberteifi, to thank for her love of the language. She's now Director of Teaching for the National Centre for Learning Welsh and talks about the opportunities available for anyone who wants to get started.
