Madison Tazu la BBC:

An English-born woman with an Irish background has been named the 2008 Welsh Learner of the Year at the National Eisteddfod.

Madison Tazu, who started learning 10 months ago, received a trophy and £300 at a ceremony in Cardiff Castle.

Although she was brought up in Cardigan and now lives in Cardiff, she said she had earlier rejected the language.

Her next challenge is to learn Spanish and she hopes then to go to Patagonia to help in Welsh schools.
