Hi from South Australia

Croeso from the pedant of the forum!!
You have got further than me on the course. I keep getting deflected!! But I am re-learning, not learning from scratch and I was taught the old fashioned, inefficient way!! The only advantage to learning a non-conversational way is that you can spell. You don’t necessarily ever learn to say what you spell, but you can spell it!!
So: 'shi in English is ‘si’ in Cymraeg. ‘oo’ in English is ‘w’ in Cymraeg, ‘u’ in Cymraeg is pronounced like ‘ee’ in English. I could go on, but will stop boring you!!

on your progress!
p.s. Have you found S4C? Have you signed the petition

Cheers for that henddraig, I realised I had spelt a couple of those things wrong after I posted it. I tried to sign the petition but I think the internet and my computer was a bit slow ( I am working out bush at the moment) and the " i am not a robot thing wouldn’t load so I will try later on in the week when I get home. Can we access this from Oz? I listen to Radio Cymru pod casts but when I tried to access some of the TV it said that it was only available to residents of the UK? I will definitely sign the petition though.

See thread “S4C from outside UK”. @tatjana would know how to send a link, but clicking on the search icon on the top line and typing S4C will find it!! They are increasing availability, but I cannot guarantee what you might get, especially in the wilds of the bush!! Are you our very own Crocodile Dundee??? :grinning:
edit : I see some helpful friends have added links below!!!

Here’s the link to the post in thread which contains the link to petition too. Saving S4C

To access S4C from outside UK:



Ah, thank you @mikeellwood.

Sorry @henddraig I obviously missunderstood what is wanted from me.

Here you go: the link to the thread S4C outside UK

Ha! no I am not much like Crocodile Dundee (though some may disagree). I am a hydrogeologist/ Environmental scientist working on a mine site about 700 km North of Adelaide in the arid lands. I fly in and out of here on a week on week off basis (FIFO) and live in Adelaide.Thanks for the link, I look forward to seeing whats on S4C when I get back and signing up to start Course 2!

Extreme shortage of crocodiles there I imagine!!! Lots of certain snakes and some lizards, maybe? Any really interesting species (diddorol 'wyr)? You could send pics to ‘What;s outside’!!! :thumbsup:

Done I will post a pic of an awesome Western Brown Snake I saw the other day when I get home. I can put up some pick of emus and other stuff too if people are interested. And yep very little water around here ~180mm/y rainfall but when it falls it usually all falls in a couple days and floods. Where I work is only about 200km from Coober Pedy, one of the famous Opal towns here.

What’s Outside

So here is a pic of a medium Western Brown Snake (1.5 m) Which I saw out bush the other day. These guys are pretty poisonous.

Ants on a Bush Tomato flowers

A better pic of the snake (I don’t think the last one uploaded properly)


yes something went wrong with the first one, I got a blank square! I could zoom in on the second, which is more than I can with my own efforts. BUT… please send pics like that to the “What’s outside” thread!!
@tatjana Please show him how!! I tried but got all mixed up!!!

Sorry. Yes, the first one is blank and it might be fine if you’d click on the link I posted above your post (text “What’s outside”) which will carry you instantly to the topic which I and @henddraig had in mind these pics would be fine to be posted.

Great pics though.

If you find Welsh words for the animals, plants on the pics even better.

Hope it helps.

Yep sorry I haven’t had much to do with forums before.
I have put the snake pic there, Still learning :grin:.


Paid poeni. (Don’t worry.)

Well, we got rain last night!!! Down in Adelaide they got more than we did I believe. So, not that dry. Only had to wait a few months for that tiny bit hahaha.
If you want to listen to Radio Cymru, you cant through the normal app, but if you download '‘TuneIn Radio’ you can listen to the live stream.
