Mae cwmni Boom Cymru yn cynhyrchu cyfres newydd o’r cwis hwyliog i ddysgwyr Cymraeg - ‘Llyncu Geiriau’. Gydag Eleri Siôn yn cyflwyno, bydd panelwyr yn cystadlu am y gorau i adnabod, cofio, creu a chyfieithu geiriau o bob math.
Felly rydym yn chwilio am ddysgwyr ar lefel Canolradd ac Uwch i gystadlu mewn timau o ddau. Byddwn yn ffilmio ar y 7, 8 a 9 o Hydref.
Boom Cymru TV are producing a new series of the light hearted Welsh learners quiz ‘Llyncu Geiriau’. With Eleri Siôn presenting, the panellists will compete against each other in various linguistic rounds.
We are looking for learners of intermediate and higher levels to take part in teams of two.
We’ll be filming on the 7,8 + 9th of October.
I’ve just had an email off Ffion saying that because I was on the last series they wouldn’t consider me for this one. Please don’t ignore this guys, it was one of the best experiences of my Welsh-speaking life. Go for it.
I’d better confess that Ffion talked me into this one too. I’m teaming with Martin Coleman. Looking forward to it as I do like word games, but a little concerned that neither of us has actually seen the programme and not a single snippet of it appears to be available online. Gruntius, is this likely to be a handicap?!
I don’t think it will be a handicap at all Karen, we hadn’t seen it either, obviously. You could practice memory games for the picture round but apart from that you either know the answer or you don’t.
Can you give any clues about the picture round? Do you have to recognise famous people or places?! You said you could practise this round - in what way?! At the age of 72, I fear my brain might not be as sharp as it was (especially in Welsh!), so any tips would be gratefully received. Diolch!
They are drawn cartoony pictures of normal everyday things … Pirate, iron, flag, sink, ship, mushroom, car, shoe, apple, etc. Nothing difficult. I think there are 20 to remember and you get 30 seconds to recall them. Just simple memory games would help. I tried to make up a story with them in my mind as Eleri was calling them out but I failed miserably.
Thanks very much. That sounds a bit like Kim’s game when you have objects on a tray and then gradually add more - then you cover them up and try to remember them. I go to visit an old school friend in Caernarfon and we play this - just to convince ourselves we are not getting dementia! The trouble is - now do I know the Welsh words for those things you mentioned?! Off to consult the geiriadur!
