Hi @ken, Have you signed up for Welsh Speaking Practice on Slack? That’s where a lot of us find speaking partners. You can join simply by sending an email to "email@example.com" with “WSP” in the title.
Like you, I would once never have thought to be able to have conversations in Welsh lasting an hour - now I have had many. It does help of course to find people with whom one has a spark in common.
If you’d like an introductory ‘sgwrs’ - whether on Slack or Skype - I’d be very happy to chat with you. Whether it’s an hour, 15 or 30 minutes first off, the important thing is to make a start and build from there.
Hi, Ken - Just a suggestion.
How about a trip down to the Ty Tawe Welsh centre in Swansea on a Saturday morning? I don’t know if you’ve been, but it’s open for a reasonably priced coffee and an informal chat between 10:00 and 12:00. Also there’s a book/craft shop there, so there’s plenty of variety and no time commitment if you get my drift.
Sorry. Just to clarify -
That should be “any time between 10:00 and 12:00.” So it’s café style, come and go, not structured.
