Hi, just started with the ‘say something a day’ bits. I did used to be able to speak welsh fluently, even got an GCSE and an A level in it, but it turns out that’s not actually so good to actually be able to claim I’m fluent in it, say, for a job in which I need to speak welsh.
Can just about read and write in welsh barring the odd word or some confusion (for example, for some reason I keep thinking deuddeg is 20, I know it’s twelve, but my brain thinks ‘two ten’ is twenty, lol), it’s speaking it that I’ve had never had much confidence, which with customers in the past tended to result in them reverting to english to spare me. When I really don’t want to be spared, I want to get better at this.
Current plan’s going to be to go through the sentence per day bits at fast speed until I hit something I find hard, then start working through the bits beyond my skills day by day, then when I reach the end maybe look at the boot camp as a ‘final test’ sorta.
In the meantime, gonna be listening to the radio, maybe looking at welsh media and memes, and generally trying to immerse myself more.
