Dw i wedi bod yn dysgu am biti mis, a mae eisiau i fi siarad Cymraeg yn araf achos… I am deaf (totally on one side, profoundly on the other). Scientists say the hard-of-hearing take an extra 0.6 of a second for their brains to interpret what sounds they can hear, filling in the gaps as necessary. Thanks to the miracles of modern medicine and technology I manage quite well, so over ‘am bit mis’ have progressed from Course 1, Gwers 1-7, then on to Challenges 1-9 so far. But that is at my own pace and I rely on visual cues (the transcripts) when I am not sure what the sounds are.
Allet ti helpu, a siarad yn araf (eto ac eto) gyda fi? Dw i ddim yn siwr os dw i’n mynd i gallu ddeall, ond dw i’n mynd i trio. Mae’n ddrwg ‘da fi, ond dw i’n meddwl bo’ fi dal moyn y ‘script’
Phew, my brain hurts–this takes a lot of concentration, ond dw i’n joio y cyfle i ymarfer.
That sounds like a huge achievement, Marilyn - I admire your determination enormously. It sounds as though you’d be a particularly good person to talk to when we get to the point of trying to think more carefully about how to make the course better/more accessible…
This is absolutely wonderful and very exciting–thank you so, so much!
I will set up a new Skype account (I had problems with it crashing my computer several times, so a friend who seems to work magic with such things is going to try to do this for me early next week). Once I am up and running I will let you know. In the meantime, put that metronome on Largo… .
