[6 month course] - I listened to my '3 stories' recording, and here's how I feel now


And THAT’S the really important bit :star: :star2: Well DONE!


Proud that I have stuck with completing the challenges but still need more practice so I sound a bit more fluent


I am very slow thinking of what to say and how to say it


I was putting off recording my 3 stories and then the challenge came up to listen to them so I was shamed into recording them very quickly and pretending that I had done it earlier. Listening back to them wasn’t as horrendous as I thought it was going to be. I got into a terrible pickle on the very last word but no way was I going to re record the whole lot. Cut a long story short, my feeling on listening was “Phew, I made it!” and quietly pleased with myself.


I didn’t cringe as much because it flowed a little better than before. I did pick up my English word slipped in by mistake though!!


I have to admit that I haven’t kept up very well with saying my sentences to myself every day, which probably has something to do with how hesitant they sound on my recording. Even so, it feels quite exciting to compare the one sentence yn Gymraeg I learned at the beginning with being able to say 15 sentences that I pieced together myself. It’s a good feeling and a great reminder of how far I’ve come.
