I don’t usually comment on internet forums (never, in fact) but having read some of the posts here on ssiw it seems like such a lovely, friendly community that I wanted to say hello. I have only been learning for about 3 weeks and have just finished challenge 14. Although by ‘finished’ I basically mean ‘listened to without saying much’ because I am finding it impossible to sort out all the ‘he said that’ and ‘my sister said that your brother…’ etc! Not to mention the ‘he wanted me to tell you’ and ‘she wanted you to tell me’. For some reason I also have a complete block when it comes to remembering ‘the old/young man/woman’!
I am an accidental Welsh learner. I have been learning french and was looking around for some intermediate french resources and I stumbled across someone talking about ssiw on a language learning site. It sounded quite interesting so for a bit of fun I listened to the first challenge and really enjoyed it so I did the next challenge and the next and here I am at challenge 14!
I had never thought about learning Welsh although I believe I had a great, great grandmother who was Welsh and actually my brother in law has just moved to Wales. I love the musicality of the language.
Anyway, thank you for such a great course and for providing so much free content which tempted me to try it. Without it I would never even have thought about starting to learn Welsh
