Bore da, haven’t been on the forum for a bit and just noticed this. Yes that would be a great idea. We could also ask on the Duolingo learners Facebook page too and elsewhere to see who is out there. I’m sure there are others.
Neis clywed oddi wrtho ti!
I am not on the forum much either. Tbh I have tried SSI and haven’t really got on with it; I’m studying with learnwelsh.cymru (arlein wrth gwrs!) and doing DuoLingo so that’s enough learning really, I just need more speaking!

They reason that they will pick up English soon, but a good grounding in Welsh will mean that they will always be comfortable in it. This is admirable, but also frustrating for their
Scottish family! Dw i ‘di bod yn dysgu ers tua blwyddyn, ond dw i angen ymarfer! I’m on level3 in SSiW, and I’m also using Duolingo, but I would love to practise locally…I am in South Edinburgh. If you, or anyone else reading this within easy travelling distance, would be interested in meeting for coffee and some rather halting chat, I would love to hear from you. Regards, Ann
If you private message me your number and I can Whatsapp you as I really don’t use the forum much (apologies for the late reply). Hopefully you’re a whatsapp user?
I’ve met up a couple of times with people for a coffee/tea but we are due another. I will start a whatsapp group with everyone to check who is available when.
I am away on holiday at the end of the month but am free every sat and sunday afternoon in April (apart from sat 15th) so can definitely meet for a drink and a practise
