Meggan Lloyd Prys

...de la BBC:

A teacher from Ohio in the USA has been named as the Welsh Learner of the Year for 2009.

Meggan Lloyd Prys was awarded the prestigious title on Wednesday by judges at the National Eisteddfod in Bala, Gwynedd.

The 29-year-old says she started learning the language the day she arrived in Wales, three years ago.

She now works as a classroom assistant on Anglesey, putting her language skills to the test every day.

Mrs Lloyd Prys was the only overseas finalist in the event this year, along with three others, all from England.

She came to Wales after meeting her husband-to-be Cynog while studying in America.

But after setting up home at Rhiwlas, near Bangor, she set herself the challenge of taking her wedding vows in Welsh - less than a month later...
