Okay, that’s interesting - that suggests strongly to me that if you get your mindset right, you’ll be able to speak before you hear the Welsh most of the time - but that can happen later.
Right now, the important thing is to make sure that you are saying something in the gap every time - so making full use of the pause button.
You’ve proven now that this method is working for you - or 1 to 7 would not have felt so familiar - so now you really need to push on through to the end of Level 1 with as much use of the pause button as you need, but without repeating any sessions…
You can do this, Claudia. Just follow the map…
Oh, the dragons are back, wonderful…love them, diolch yn fawr iawn iawn!
I downloaded all the lessons of level one to my iPod and will take them to work with me again tonight. Last Sunday, during night shift, I sometimes felt myself getting in ‘the flow’…I could blurt out sentences without thinking and searching for words…without consciously translating. A part of me just stood there with an open mouth! Before, I had the impression everything I learned went in, yes, but got lost somewhere in the depth of my brain. As if there was a huge mess…I couldn’t reach anything. Now, my brain seems to have started to organise things, in order to make the Welsh I’ve learned available.
Goodness, just imagine, finishing Level 1 and being able to move on to Level 2…I almost don’t dare hoping for this to happen
I will follow the map, Aran…diolch o galon for your precious help and support!
You’ll get there…
Since I don’t have a webcam, that’s me. When I made a selfie, my grown up sons laughed their behinds off and said: “Mamma, try not to look soooo boring…at least try to make a duckface!” Well, I’ll never be able to make a dignified duckface
