SSi Forum

Hi I want to get some. Speaking practice


#1

How do we go about getting sentences and speaking practice?


#2

Hi, @philip-2. Are you in either of the Slack groups, where there are usually people looking for practice partners? To join the Welsh Speaking Practice group, send an e-mail with ‘WSP’ in the title, to: admin@saysomethingin.com

Pob lwc! Good luck!


#3

Diolch. Ive just realised not many people are using Slack and all the business of ssiw is done on the forum

Hi Philip,

Happy to listen to your sentences/ chat if you haven’t got something lined up.

I had no success getting onto slack. I am on Skype, zoom and Facebook messenger. All of these are possible for me to practice with someone. Just need to find someone who wants to practice.


#6

What was your problem with Slack David? Have you had an invite? (you need one to access the WSP group)


#7

I got there from a link on one of the lessons? It was very complicated and I spent a good deal of time getting nowhere. I am not keen to try again when I have other much simpler options at hand


#8

If it was a link in the lessons that would be the 6/6 group (tutor support and chat for people on the course). The WSP group is open to anyone (SSiW or not) but still by invitation. It’s a shame you couldn’t get on with the format as there are lots of chats to be had there, but it doesn’t suit everyone so I hope you find people to chat to.

Hi @davidhamilton, Happy to try out some speaking practice with you on Zoom or Skype. Even those of us who use Slack often do arrange to meet up on Zoom.


#10

Thanks. If you like, you can contact me at (removed email) and maybe we can arrange something


#11

Thank you. If you want to contact me directly at (removed email) we’ll see what we can do


#12

Hi @davidhamilton

I’ve pinged you an email …

Rich :slight_smile:


#13

Hi Alan. Thanks for your reply. I was unable to get to your private message. What I got was “Ooops, this is either private or doesn’t exist” No option for getting in was offered. Did I miss something?


#14

Difficulty in contacting outside this form, without posting an email address. Doing that is risky. :frowning: Open to suggestions on how to connect


#15

OK David - I was about to say I’d send you an email reply but I see you’ve removed it (which is not a bad idea on this public forum).
Ha! I see you’ve responded to my direct message, so we’ll continue from there.


#16

This time, I was able to go directly to your messages. If this is a safe place, I can give you my email here. Are you in north America or the UK?


#17

I’ve just direct messaged you, David. If you want to give me your email, do so there, rather than here. I’m in the UK.
