Matt Spry

Originally from Plymouth, Matt Spry has lived in Cardiff for five years, and has been learning Welsh since 2015.  He hopes to sit the Uwch (Higher) exam next year.  He works for Cardiff University’s School of Welsh as a tutor-organiser, responsible for organising and teaching Welsh to refugees and asylum seekers living in Cardiff.  He says that learning Welsh has been a great help to him over the years, and has changed his life completely.  His ambition is to continue to work as a Welsh tutor with refugees and asylum seekers, and he would also enjoy working on other innovative teaching projects, including offering Welsh lessons in prisons, to people with mental health issues, or those with drugs and alcohol issues.
