… a survey that I am conducting as part of my Master’s degree. The survey questions attempt to capture your experiences as an SSiW learner.
The link to the survey is here: https://unesurveys.au1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6EkgotHhzKBGx7L
No personal information, nor any other information of a private nature will be recorded, and there is an opportunity to provide your consent for the survey before you start the survey.

Thank you very much for your help!
P.S. I’ve uploaded the information sheet for the survey, this is a requirement of my university, the University of New England in Armidale, Australia
Done. Good luck with your course.
Done. I hope you get lots of useful data.
As a SSiW lurker rather than a SSiW learner, I can’t really do the survey for you but just wanted to say all the best with your masters degree
Done and even with an effort not to mention Datblygu to make it more anonymous.
Good luck with your degree!
Done but some of the questions are about the present and I don’t really use the lessons anymore. I have made appropriate comments in the spaces provided though.
I also had that problem so commented in the boxes provided. Also I have never used Memrise and only looked at Duolingo to help trial it during beta testing, yet I couldn’t proceed without giving them a rating. I have no idea whether Memrise is any good or not.
Done. Just one problem- it asked how effective some things were that I’ve not used in one of the last questions, and wouldnt move on if i didn’t check the boxes e.g. Youtube. So i marked them 1, but that just means I haven’t used then, not that they were ineffective.
Memrise is just about learning vocabulary. However, with Welsh (I think it may be different with major languages) it relies on individuals putting up their vocabulary so there are a few mis-spellings and, with some words, I just don’t know if anyone actually uses them. There are lots that have been put up by individuals for Welsh covering just a few words and others with more than a thousand in them. I am currently using Cwrs Uwch (Gogledd) as it feels more ‘official’ even though I prefer Southern Welsh. I now use the paid for version so can remove words (that might still be possible with the free version). I think it is worth a look, it is basically flash cards and repetition. I use it on my phone and like it but not sure how many new words I learn, it certainly helps with old words that I know but may struggle to always remember.
That is, I ranked 1 for activities that I had no experience with because the survey would not move on without a a response and N/A was not an option. BTW, my daughter went to UNE here in Maine - USA. Not related to your UNE and not anywhere close to as large but still the same name and same acronym. Go Nor’easters!
I had done the same too (although I hadn’t written my notes just to Louis and not here on the Forum).
At least looks like many of us have been consistent in using the same “trick” (@Richard_R) !
I think I did look at Memrise years ago but decided that the Welsh vocabulary lists weren’t always to be trusted. Besides, as I was usually attending a face-to-face classe, I could always ask the tutor. Words are often regional, so it was good to have a local native speaker explain what she would use.
Thank you Emma - I am about to amend the question you mentioned - but marking options you haven’t used as 1 is fine in the meantime.
Thank you for taking part!
Thank you Richard - a ranking of 1 is fine, but I will amend that question to allow for N/A responses.
Many thanks for taking the time to respond.
The local brewery here does a wonderful and hazy Minutemen New England IPA, and that is a reference to ‘your’ New England - the brewer spent some time there
Thank you both for your responses - and your comments, much appreciated!
Done. The only issue I had was that I expect responses would be different for learners in Wales compared to international learners and there was no question on this. Hopefully responses from Wales are fine?
I can’t make a selection from the options in how I listen. The previous question has been answered.
