This is my message to say Hello to the entire community and a big warm thankyou to the “SaysomethinginWelsh” team. Hailing from sunny Brighton, It’s a pleasure and a joy to have the Welsh language material cheap and accessible for all and a method of learning that, I find, more natural than anything I’ve tried before.
I’m now on Course 1, lesson 6.1, enjoying my experience loads and look forward in future to meet up with any fellow Brighton learners,
Croeso I forum Gareth - and pob lwc with the rest of course 1. Make sure you book yourself onto one of the excellent bootcamps next year; you’ll be amazed at what a massive boost to the learning process it is!
Ah, the infamous lessons 6. Don’t worry, it gets much easier after they’re finished. And I second the bootcamp recommendation. The confidence you get from going on one of those is a great help when it comes to speaking, and hearing as much Welsh as you do over the week makes listening and understanding much easier too.
Hi Gareth, welcome aboard. Chris is right, get through 6 and the rest are a breeze. Make sure to keep us posted on how you’re getting on - good or bad you’ll always find someone to cheer you on or support you with the tough bits
Hi all, Diolch for the comments & support and I just finished lesson 6.2. phew , I am really happy with my progress even though my brain was numb by end of 6.1, That lesson was a challenge . “Mae isie i fi / ti…& Oes isie i fi / ti…” are still tongue twisting for me when I hear them…especially at speed.
. I’m also soaking up Welsh radio & TV which is helping me reinforce the words I have learnt and understand which is really helping.
