Learners in PortTalbot

Ok … for an evening meet, how about a Monday evening starting the 25th Feb meet at The Aberavon Beach Hotel for 6.30 - 7pm? (I’m away this Monday)
For an afternoon meet we could start Wednesday 20th say for 12.30pm ?

Both open to location day/time change if not convenient, just throwing it out there to get something sorted.
I’m free to attend both evening and daytime meets :slight_smile:
Wish we could do a poll on here…can we? If not it’d be good if you could say when you can meet up.
Diolch
PS. Perhaps we should all wear a daffy so we know each other lol

Hi Caz & All.
Given a 100% choice I’d go for Wed eve or Thurs Eve, but Monday Evening would be OK.

As I said, don’t worry too much about me, as I get chance to talk Welsh on a fairly regular basis anyway. So, the main thing is that you all get together, whenever you can make it.

Edit: Hi @toni-matthews . To be honest I thought the same about the lack of Welsh speakers. But I’m surprised at how many of my friends and acquaintances turned out to be secret speakers (well a few anyway), although admittedly it did take me several months to suss them out. :slight_smile:

I can do a Wed evening John, so if it’s easier for others fine with me too.
See what the others say and we’ll go from there?
So votes please and we can get a regular meeting starting in Port Talbot for us SSIW learners.

Wednesday fine with me .


#57

Yes, Wed eve sounds great. It’s 50/50 if I can make next Wednesday, but the one after should be definitely ok.


#58

Helo,
I would prefer to meet in the day time, but cannot do a Wednesday, Monday 25th would be ok for a first meeting, but I do not think I would be able to meet every Monday. But if that is when people want to meet thats fine, I could come when I could.

Yes, I think it would be good for you to pick a mutually suitable day and time. As I said, don’t miss out because of me, as I’m ok with finding Welsh speakers anyway. Obviously I’d be happy to come along though.


#60

I’m really variable with the days and evenings I can do, because although I only work 3 days a week, I don’t work set days every week. I’ll do my very best to make the first meet up on Monday 25th Feb though. I’m working all day but I will try to make it by 6.30pm. I do a class with my teenage daughter in the Aberavon Fitness Centre just next door to the hotel at 8pm on a Monday/Wednesday so meeting in the hotel is great for me. Helen


#61

What I should also have said is because Im so variable, I’ll join you on whatever days suit you guys the best, when I can. Helen


#62

Has any decision been made as to if and when and where a meet up will take place ?


#63

Hi all I’ve been away for a few days.
I’ve collated the days and times that everyone has indicated they can make to keep track, but as a starter it’s looking like Monday the 25th is a go if only for a one off meet. Maybe we can discuss a way forward then?
If a few others are free for Wed 20th meeting at 12.30 I am available, but if you could confirm if you’re coming that’d be great, or I’ll be on my lonesome.

So Monday 25th is a go then…I’ll get there for 6.30pm.
Wed 20th is pending depending on who can come along.
Hope this is ok, really looking forward to meeting and chatting :smile:
@Dee (newsletter?) Diolch

Hi Carin, sorry I can’t make Wednesday 20th because I’m working but I’ll be there for Monday 25th February at 6.30pm. Looking forward to meeting you all. Helen😃


#65

Hi Toni, are you able to make Monday 25th February at 6.30pm in The Aberavon Hotel on the sea front. It’d be nice to meet you and a few other locals who are still beginners at dysgu Cymraeg. Helen :blush:


#66

Great see you then.
20th is a maybe so no worries


#67

Sorry I will not be able to meet up on Wednesday the 20th as have visitors, hope to make the 25th though.
Sandy


#68

Do you think it would be a good idea to creat a channel for us in Slack?
I did a search and nothing came up - just a thought


#69

Yes definately .


#70

I’ve set up a #porttalbotlearners group in Slack.
We can make calls in there if we fancy a quick chat between meets.
Hopefully this is the link: https://welshspeakingpractice.slack.com/messages/CGALXDLJJ/details/
If not just pop into channels and scroll down a bit to find it in the listings.
I’ve added John, but can’t find anyone else to add so please can you add yourself :slight_smile:
Thanks


#71

Great, thanks All. I hope to be OK for Monday 25th evening. But will need to confirm if OK. I’ll take a look at the Slack channel to familiarise myself with it.

Incidentally, on a different local theme: Is the Banksy still on the original garage wall next to the chapels in Ty Bach, please? It’s for my daughter, who is visiting at the moment with our grandchildren.
