An 81-year-old Englishman woke up after having suffered from a stroke speaking only Welsh. The catch? He never formally learned Welsh, and was last in the country 70 years ago.
Alun Morgan grew up speaking only English. However, during World War II, the retiree was evacuated to Wales, where he lived with his grandmother and was surrounded by Welsh-speakers. He spoke the language then, but says that he has not used the language since his childhood when he returned to England after the war, The Independent reports.
