Noswaith dda- I’m coming back to SSiW after a big old gap…around 4 months due to person/professional reasons. I was going well before and chuffed with my progress but have struggled to get back in to a routine, despite trying to speak Welsh every day. How do people motivate themselves to get back on the wagon? I need a rocket up my butt!
Bore da, Emilia!
At which Level/Challenge did you stop?
I’m sure we can all add something later, but to start with a few links I remember, where other learners have shared how they keep themselves motivated (sometimes to get back on the wagon, sometimes not to fall off…but I guess they might all help finding inspiration).
p.s. just a side note, seeing your name: I’m hoping to put together a small group of Italian-speaking (all levels) Welsh learners to chat from time to time…er…cutting English off completely (or almost). So if you happen to speak Italian and might be interested, let me know!
So jealous! This is a great idea!
Well of course it starts out of self-intertest, because learning a language through a second language is always harder.
But also, specifically for Welsh, I had already noticed how confusing English is for phonetics and a few other things, like relative clauses for example.
And when I tried Duolingo again recently, and saw most of my mistakes were in Welsh to English sentences, I realized that also for the main structures/sequences the jump is way bigger than straight from Italian!
Such an useless effort…not helping fluency for sure!
