who is Suw?

Suw Charman is a writer/web designer/internet entrepreneur who's been learning Welsh since April ’98. Amongst other things, she has written features for the Melody Maker and provided BBC Wales Online with an introduction to Welsh, Just Enough Welsh to Impress, (under her previous nom de plume, Lewis).

Suw went to university in Cardiff where she worked on the award winning student newspaper, Gair Rhydd, and came to know an number of Welsh speakers. The first phrase she learnt, after ‘gwasanaethau’ (services),
was ‘dw i eisiau dy gorff’, a chat up line she has never used. However, it wasn’t until several years later when
Suw Charman
she became a fan of the Super Furry Animals that she started to seriously learn yr hen iaith.

English by birth and descent, Suw has become a keen supporter of the Welsh language and particularly of adult learners, launching the Clwb Malu Cachu Yahoo group in May 2000 and this web site in January 2001. The idea for both was born of the frustrations felt by Suw and fellow learner Debs Williams regarding the lack of online learning opportunities for adults at the time.

After working for a few years as a web designer and online content manager, Suw launched a new service for Welsh learners - Get Fluent. The Get Fluent worksheets have proven to be a huge hit with learners, and are available for purchase on CD-ROM. The CMC/Get Fluent shop also sells a range of Welsh t-shirts.

Suw is a keen blogger, writing in English at Chocolate and Vodka and in Welsh here on Clwb Malu Cachu.

She is still a big fan of the Super Furry Animals.
