Helo again Cymru

It’s been several years since I posted on here! And it certainly feels that way.
After I left Caerdydd I went to the South of England as the jobs in my field were limited in Wales.
However I never lost the Welshness that I built up over the years. In fact colleagues at work still assume I’m Welsh as I can speak the language and always support Cymru in the rugby. Wales was and still is a second home to me, despite me having no genuine roots there. Those things will never change. In my flat I have a Cymru doormat and several Welsh related items inside. Y Ddraig Goch rules in my abode.
Learning Welsh is still a crowning achievement. It’s such a big talking point. When I met my other half, I just had to show off with my S4C interview and she now mentions it to all her friends and family!
I was never the biggest poster here, however I always perused the forum now and then once I moved away, and I still feel a connection with this site.

I see a few things have changed since I left- Apart from the three courses and the Bwtcamps, what are the other resources that the site provides?


Croeso nôl Mihil!

Yes, there are a couple of new things - there is now an “Advanced content” section with loads of listening practices, and there is also a workspace on Slack called “Welsh Speaking Practice” where anyone from anywhere can have chats in Welsh whatever level they’re at (to join that you need an invitation - just email admin@saysomethingin.com to ask :slight_smile: )
The Slack group is free access, but you may need to subscribe to see the advanced content because the free access to the courses has stopped now.

Lovely to see you again, Mihil! And great to hear that you’re carrying your Welshness with you :slight_smile:

I can’t remember how long ago it was that you did the courses, so it may be the original Course 1, 2, and 3 that you’re referring to. If it is, we have a new version of those now - Levels 1, 2 and 3.

I’m sure you’d enjoy chatting in Welsh on the Welsh Speaking Practice that Siaron mentioned, so do send an email through to admin if you’d like an invitation.
