New online Welsh book group


Diolch yn fawr iawn!


Diolch Catrin a Neil! Beth addi WSP?


Welsh Speaking Practice on Slack.

If you’re not already a member, here’s how you get involved with Slack -

to join the Welsh Practice Group on Slack, just send an email to with subject “WSP” and you’ll get an e-mail with an invitation and instructions.



This is a reminder that the first Hangout for our book club will take place on 24 February. We will talk about Sgwp! by Lois Arnold.

A number of people have asked for a later start time, so I would like to propose that we go for 8pm rather 7pm. I hope that is OK for as many of you as possible!

I look forward to seeing you on the Hangout.

All the best



Hi everyone

Just a quick reminder that the book group has its first meeting tonight at 8pm. I will circulate a link shortly beforehand, both on WSP and here.

I look forward to seeing you!

Pob hwyl



Shwmae pawb, here is the link for the Hangout at 8pm. I look forward to seeing you!


Thank you to those of you who joined the book group hangout this evening, and sorry to those who could not join. I will post details about the next one as soon as I am able to and look forward to seeing you there in about 6-8 weeks’ time!

Pob hwyl



Diolch am trefnu’r cyfarfod, Neil. Rwydd hywl.

Thanks for organising the hangout, Neil. It was fun. I just ordered Gwers Mewn Cariad. Should reach me by mid-March at the latest.


I got my copy online from siop cwlwm @lornarhodes - swift and reasonable :slight_smile: Might be worth checking them out for another book?


Hi everyone, how is Monday 13 April at 8pm for the next hangout (with @beca-brown)?


That’s good for me! :slight_smile:


Sounds like a plan! :slightly_smiling_face:


It’s in the diary and the book is on order so hopefully I’ll manage to join the group next time. Fingers crossed :crossed_fingers:


Sorry but my “Sgwp” book took a while to reach Italy. I ordered it on February the 13th and it arrived yesterday! :roll_eyes: Maybe next time!


Mae Gwers Mewn Cariad gyda fi! :sunglasses::slightly_smiling_face:


Hi Gisella!

I’m still quite interested to discuss (i.e. have a second bite at discussing) Sgŵp - maybe a little touch of “compare & contrast with Beca’s Gwers Mewn Cariad”, with the benefit of having done some ymarfer-siarad or ymarfer-sgwennu using the sort of words & phrases that @nia.llywelyn kindly looked out for us & posted on WSP…

Also looking at other Lois Arnold books & popular learners’ authors…

Doing each book in Clwb Darllen as a discrete entity will allow us to give maximum access to newcomers but (somehow as an add-on, occasionally) a healthy habit of hearing of each others’ delights & struggles with their own sequence of reading adventures, does appeal to me…


To celebrate book day if anybody’s interested. 10am, 6/6 course support on Slack


Hi Lorna!

actually I haven’t even started reading them! :grin:
But I have both Sgŵp and Gwers Mewn Cariad. So as soon as I’m ready I’ll let you know and I’ll be glad to discuss them with you. :slight_smile:
p.s. I’m afraid I won’t start them very soon because I’m a bit too busy now but I will, I will!


Hi Folks, is there a book group for Intermediate / advanced learners?


Hi Cris, that is precisely who this group is aimed at. You are very welcome to join us!
