SSIW Citing Summary - Socpie.uk 

 This can easily be found by keying in Aran Jones on Ytube. What he is doing with his lips is complete mystery. He son is just reading out phrases for learners to listen to and memorise. There 2,000+ phrases to go for the parrots who are trying to memorise them.
     Nicky claim his method was fast way to learn a confident speaking capability on his website. It is probably is if you are a 'parrot' and you want to learn a few phrases. Human being are intelligent beings. What Aran is using is a behaviourist animal training that was develop for Pavlov and his dogs. 

(Readers are invited to read the details how to practice it!!!)

What is extremely interesting is Aran Jones decided to offer his nightly lessons during Covid. His lesson is 87. He appears to be marketing his methods to English speaking parents who needed to support their children's Welsh language learning.

Aran Jones Claims

Aran Jones:-

  •  appears to have decided to give website Welsh lesson after his Welsh language pressure group lost finance in 2010 

  •  has no legal teaching qualifications and there is no evidence he has written a book on pedagogy;
  •  is given website lessons into cyberspace, he only has the word of the thousands of learners serves of what they achieve;
  •  is claiming to have taught learners Welsh across the world, he claims he wants to create colonies of Welsh speakers abroad, and that he want some to come to Wales to increase the number of Welsh speakers here;

  •    claims that it possible for learners to  speak Welsh to level where they will b able to speaking it to anyone they meet in weeks;

  •     claimed that two English speaking councils could learn to use Welsh  in their workplace after a few binge learning weekend of learning;

  • claimed to have learnt Manx to a conversational level from scratch in 11 hours;

  • claimed on Manx T.V. he had invented a new ‘fast memorisation’ method of learning languages;
  •      claimed it could be done in any language;

  • claimed he intents to create five version of is website course in different language each year (He appears to have Dutch, Latin and Spanish versions of it);

  •  when he was asked if he had learnt any of these languages he explained only Manx;

  •    he claimed he used algorithms to translate his Welsh course into Manx;

       Research illustrates it is impossible to binge-learn a new language to a conversational level in 11 hours. It also illustrates it requires practice every day for three years to reach a fluent vocabulary of 500 words in any new language. Fluent native languages cannot be learnt exclusively in classrooms. It takes around 10,000 hours to develop anything resembling native like language fluently.

        It is very interesting that Aran only claims to have used his method to learn Manx. It is extremely strange Adrain Cairns Manx Language officer did not attempt to learn Welsh. He would have been able to independently demonstrate the validity Aran's methods. 

      Adrain would have gained an insight into his methods. He did not appear to have any interest in supporting Manx learners.

         If Aran Jones had learnt Spanish to a basic communicative fluency in 11 hours, surely many Spanish speakers willing to speak to him, even if it was basic Spanish. This would allowed him to market his methods to potential Spanish learners.

      It is strange the 'great markeeter' missed this opportunity. Was it because he knew what he had done?

       Alogrithms are very complicated computer calculations. They are black box calculations. Languages do not directly translate from one to another. Aran could not afford for a university to create such alogrithms for him. They require repeated complex computer computations. It could not be done automatically.

It appears he was trying to find a way out to support his claim be had never heard a work of Manx in his Manx in a Day stunt.

     Aran probably did not know what the word meant!!

       What Aran Jones is so ignorant of is that all educationalist such as myself are magpies that have the conviction to learn from authorities in their field. The Harvard manuscript that I posses that blows Aran Jones silly methods out of water has 10 leading authorities. No other country in United Kingdom has to put up with Aran Jones nonsense.

Aran Jones Method

Aran Jones states:-

  •       cut out all the complicated stuff;

  •      it is crazy to learn grammar; 

  •        listen to languages at double speed;

  •      do not use positive language transfer

  •       do not use text book.

       What Aran Jones is skilfully marketing is that his website so unique that it differs from every other course that exists. He even advises learners not to use books. He is implying that learner's will learn successfully learn them if they do not take courses that employ these toxic practice them. He even implies professional teachers do not know how to teach. 

Aran Jones even claims teachers make him ‘angry’.

       I am confident that a degree is common sense is not need to suggest that it there was simple way of learning, then someone would have found it. Respected course providers like the Open University must apply courses that equip learners to learn a range of language across a range of different language, otherwise they would be sued.     

        Aran Jones is too ignorant to understand that word learning is no different to learning anything else. Is it credible that professional teachers across the world do not know how to teach?. He appears and those university academics who have supported his practice, appears lamentably ignorant that proven practice is those which is applied on a large sample of people. Professional teachers teach millions of learners across the world.

  Aran Jones referred to proven second language learning methods are 'old fashioned'. All he was expecting learners to do was to copy what was said to them. It was demonstrated on his Manx in Day stunt. It is the 'Feed Duck' view of learning. It dates back to Confucious in 479 B.C.

     Aran Jones is a brilliant marketeer. He does not have a clue about how we learn. 

I would like to thank Aran Jones for demonstrating his methods on his podcast. Socpie has videod them.

     I am Q.T.S legally trained and qualified to teach Welsh. Aran Jones and Professor Tess Fitzpatrick are not. My evaluation of Aran Jones are legal professional one's.

Gareth King has a Cambridge degree. Aran Jones only has a poxy Welsh literature degree.  

Gareth King is leading authority on world language. Aran Jones is not.  

Gareth King learnt Welsh Adult and other languages in some form,

Aran Jones has not bothered to learn Spanish because he knows he could be challenged.

Gareth King has produced quality learning support material.

Aran Jones advises learners to 'cut out the complicated stuff'.

Gareth King approves books for Routledge.

Aran Jones gets his friends to support his methods.

There is no teacher in the world who would support his silly methods.

Aran Jones has no teaching qualifications.

The Welsh for Adult service are required to apply proven methods. 

Aran Jones methods are proven to be 'trash'.

Socpie.uk more evidence about Aran Jones conduct.

Watch this space to find more about his conduct.

The stuff that Aran Jones cites illustrates he is too ignorant to understand the complexity of learning. It is equivalent to someone advising people to avoid eating the substance of an apple and that should only eat only the skin. 

      Aran Jones appears to believe he is the only person on planet earth who knows how to teach language. They are so unique no one else practices it. He is no quite the most incompetent tutor in the United Kingdom. Some of his claims are risible.

     Professional teachers relate research to contexts. He is demonstrating 'concrete thinking'. He is too ignorant to understand what he does not understand. He is prostituting research that he refers to. He makes £150 for each learners who uses his method for year. All his providing is phrases for learners to listen to.

       In simplest terms if some has been to Caswell Bay and they have been there, then they will be able to create a picture of it when it is referred to, otherwise they will be reading words on paper. Aran Jones has never had his competence or pedagogic understanding assessed by qualified teahers. He is a 'quack'.

         Professional Teachers devote their lives to teaching. I have written 500,00 words in my privately published, limited distribution researched books. If the academics who have colluded with Aran Jones had the depth of my pedagogic understanding, then they would be incompetent in their professional domain.

       Learners have trusted Aran Jones including Leanne Woods A.M. They would not have expected him not to offer sincere, open and honest constructive advice. He knows what he has been doing. It cannot be accidental. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

       Aran Jones is not a registered charity. His only interest appears to be to take money out of English speakers pockets. Learners want to be offered support and help. They do no deserve to be offered reckless advice.

      Unlike Aran Jones the Welsh for Adult service tutors are not allowed to say-any-thing-they-like and practice-anything they-like, they are now contractually required to practice proven methods. They will be reported to their compliance departments if they do not.

     Readers are invited to complain to the universities that have supported Aran Jones, who clearly have extremely low expectations for community learners, and submissions are being made by socpie.uk to the Welsh Government and E.S.T.Y.N. for the Welsh for Adult service to be taken out of these universities.

      Paul Boyle Vice-Chancellor of Swansea University has been written to. Venture Vanin Isle of Man is in active discussions with socpie.uk. Colin Reardon Cardiff University and Agored Cymru will be contacted shortly. It will take time to process this issue because of Covid.

Colin Reardon Vice Chancellor Cardiff Univ

Vice Chancellor Swansea University

 Vice Chancellor Bangor University

Apparently Aran is charging £150  for his lessons.

Learners deserve quality  courses. They will, get them in the next year.
Socpie will advising learners on quality Welsh language services from July.

Evidence of Aran Jones response to my concerns and the Agored Cymru issue will be posted on this website after legal advice is obtained.

What Right has Aran Jones to Behave in this way?

There are laws in this country to protect the citizen?

What Aran Jones Does Not know

1. There are no gaps between words which is why new language learners find it difficult to identify individual words.

2. Words are stored in semantic memory, they cannot be learnt subconsciously in formative learning. There is no such thing as a subconscious memory store.

3. Children's language acquisition is biologically primary, which means that adults cannot learn like young children.

4. Young children are more conducive to learning a new language especially the language phonological and grammar. Unless adults learn new language phonology in childhood there is some language sounds they will never be able to produce.

5. Learners are not inanimate objects that words or chunks of language can be poured into the brain like petrol in a tank. What is referred to feed the duck method of learning.

6. Facts like words and phrases are learnt through distributed practice. It a process like painting, where the paints needs to dry before what is being leant us revisited.

6. 50% of facts, which words are, is lost within a hour of learning them.

7. Learners learn around 1,000 words in their native language in a familiar language. It will take a very long time for new language learners to learn and bring the words into fluency.

8. Cramming will cause interference it will be like attempting to hold to many oranges in one's hands at at once. All will be lost.

9. Learners can successfully learn a language through memorising phrases or stories. Learners need to engage in extensive construction to develop fluent language capabilities.

10. There is no credence to the Mozart effect. Music does not enhance learning. It does not allow a vast amount of language to be learnt. Music and language both pass through the phonological loop of working memory.


     Proven methods are derived from proven methods there are no 'miracle' methods of learning as Processor Sarah Eaton. Anyone practising 'unique' methods will not be applying proven methods. A vast amount of research has gone into education in the last two decades. Learners are advised to purchase the Open University *Success with Languages" Hurd and Murphy (2004). Academics Coleman and Klapper (2006). There are twenty-one second language authorities contributing to that book.

How Aran Jones Abuses English Speakers

This what Colin Miles said about Aran Jones conduct.

There are other Welsh attitudes to take into account as well.  In general, there is goodwill towards the language, but it is a fragile thing. The antics and attitudes of some Welsh campaigners risks losing it. For the people at saysomethinginwelsh.com to support Osian being sent to prison by sending him a letter of support may just about be acceptable. However, to then bring up John Redwood and suggest that the YouTube video be passed around is just childish.

How Aran Jones Personally Abuses
and Mocks English Speakers who critises him

Aran Jones cannot defend that the fact that knew I was a professional teachers.

It appears beneath his dignity to accept that an English speakers

can be talented educationalist.

There is no evidence of Aran Jones having any mutual agreement of Agroed Cy,mru..

They rejected his methods. socpie.uk has the correspondence

Aran Jones should be more cautious what he says in the public domain.

Aran to be the Dominic Cuminings of the Welsh language, he appears to personally abuse professional people over issues he does not understand. This the definition of formulaic language:-

Formulaic language (previously known as automatic speech or embolalia) is a linguistic term for verbal expressions that are fixed in form, often non-literal in meaning with attitudinal nuances, and closely related to communicative-pragmatic context.

The problem with Aran Jones he does believe "he can say anything he likes" and he become personally abusive when people question his methods. (The presentation is repetitive). Even Derek Trotter in 'Fools and Horses' never went around personally abusing people

What Aran Jones is doing is claiming he is offering Peckham spring Water of Service, as opposed to the Peckham Tap was he has been offering in his service. Derek Trotter conduct was fraudlent.
