Just want to assess opinions and gauge interest in the following
Theme or activity based weekends/meets
My idea is to have weekends or evenings based around a topic eg
A zoo visit
A murder mystery
A visit to a particular castle
Etc…all ideas appreciated.
We’d have vocab to learn ahead of the event and then use it over the duration of the event.
What do you think. If a group of four or more were interested i’d be happy to progress it further.
An interesting idea, opens up a large number of possibilities.
The murder mystery would be great if we could get the cast of Y Gwyll to pop along and do their all moody and windswept thing!
SO wish I could come! I think this is a brilliant idea!
Dwi meddwl mae’n syniad da. Dw i hoffi yn dod dibynnu ar ble/pryd.
Dwi ddiddordeb holl, ond fy cyntaf dewis coginio
Hi Sally! Great to see how well your Welsh is coming along…
One little thing - we try to keep to English in the forum, so that all our learners (even absolutely beginners) can feel part of the community - we do have a thread for practising Welsh at Be' 'dach chi'n gwneud rwan? A phethau arall yn Gymraeg - A topic to practice Welsh, open to all!
Indeed. I found this awkward at first. If in doubt, quote the translation also.
It’s a natural thing - we’re a Welsh course, people want to practise their Welsh - and we’re pretty unusual in asking people to stick to speaking/listening, and to stick to English in the community - so I think it’s particularly important for us to explain what we do and why in a clearly friendly manner when people try bravely to use what they’ve been learning…
We never feel that people using Welsh are doing something wrong - far from it! - so I hope this hasn’t come across like that to you, @sallyannmayger
My thing would be history I think … the history associated with a particular location, e.g. town, village, or part of a city. Could tie in with a visit to a castle (or a museum, or gallery).
I think this is an excellent idea. I live in Llanidloes and would like to get some theme based activities going which are led by a native or fluent Welsh speaker, but not found anybody yet.
