S’mae everyone. I was here about a year and a half ago going through course 1. But my schedule at the time was leaving me little free time. So I quit because I was having trouble finding time to practice. Now I have the time to devote to learning Welsh, and I have just completed the first 2 lessons of level 1 (Northern).
When you complete lesson 2 there is a message to read, but for some reason I couldn’t read the whole message. Here is the part I could read:
So, you’ve got about an hour under your belt with this - in an evening class, that would probably be just about enough for you to have learnt how to say what your name is, and that you’re pleased to meet someone! You can already produce far, far more than that, though. The key point at this stage is NOT TO WORRY if it doesn’t all feel under control. Language is almost never under control - you need to be ready to play with it, to make mistakes (remember how much we love mistakes?!), and to give yourself a pat on the back or a bottle of vodka every time you manage to communicate more or less what you wanted… It may sound mildly terrifying, but now would actually be a brilliant time for you to start looking for a practice partner on the forum, and planning a weekly ‘3 minute swap’, where you say whatever you can think of in Welsh
could someone please tell me what the rest of the message says?
