Yes Jane it was lovely to meet you on zoom. Your Welsh is good and I m sure your cousin will be impressed. Look forward to talking again soon. Hwyl Bethan


Yes, @chris-roberts was there, thanks (a diolch iddo am y sgwrs) :slightly_smiling_face:


Hi Bethan and Sue,
it was really lovely to ‘meet’ you both this morning! (ThoughI think you are being very kind here! :grinning:)
Look forward to seeing you soon; I’d better get practising!!
Hope you have a lovely weekend.


Helo bawb - are you all happy to keep our Friday Broad Meadow face to face meetups going (weather permitting, of course) bearing in mind that Covid is still around? We’ll keep the current arrangement for this week but we can be open to making changes as we move into August if that’s what people prefer :slightly_smiling_face:

  • 12:00 Tuesday 27th July / dydd Mawrth 27ain Gorffenaf (via Zoom - let me know if you need the login details)
  • 12:00 Friday 30th July / dydd Gwener 30ain Gorffenaf (‘Broad Meadow’ - opposite Balliol College)

Do let me know if you’ve any questions or suggestions (and also keep an eye on the Oxford Walks thread for news of next weekend’s walk) :slightly_smiling_face:
Hwyl a chadw’n saff


Hi. Sorry, I seem to have missed a lot the messages, I’m not sure how. I wasn’t able to make last week, sorry I didn’t let you know, I’m glad you didn’t end up on your own John. I am back at work in Oxford so it would be lovely to meet in Broad Meadow on Friday. Jane, I am doing the North Wales Say Something in Welsh and am only on challenge 22 so we are close in our learning journey.


Hi Heather,
Oh that’s really good to know :smiley: I am trying to catch up as I fell a bit behind a couple of weeks ago! (Not sure the last couple have ‘gone in’ properly - I think I’ve tried to rush them a bit).
I will be available for the zoom tomorrow and would love to meet up one Friday but this one is looking rather uncertain and then the next one would probably be 27th August.


Hi Heather, it was so lovely to ‘meet’ you on zoom. I hope you didn’t get too wet! (So glad you said you think you should be able to say something - but my brain goes blank and I can actually see the tumbleweed rolling about!) Hope to meet you really at some point.


I have just had my Mynediad speaking exam result back - I passed - 217/220! (I forgot what Builder was in Welsh :woman_facepalming: )

A big thank you to SSIW and all my Rhydychen Welshies for the help and practice.


Llongyfarchiadau, @ruth-connor da iawn ti! :champagne:


Llongyfarchiadau Ruth! Well deserved!


Great news, Ruth. Very well done.


It was lovely to meet you all on zoom, what a great group. :slightly_smiling_face: Rhaid i mi … find a quiet, dry place to dial in. I’m not sure what the weather is going to do on Friday but I will look out for updates to see if the meet will be in Oxford or on zoom.

Da iawn Ruth. Congratulations.


I have just booked cwrs Uwch 1 and 2 on zwm starting in September! ( No exams for me though!!!) Bethan


Well done Ruth - I don’t know the Welsh for builder either! Was that a WJEC exam? I get a bit confused about all the different courses & qualifications.


Neis cyfarfod â chi ddoe Heather and Jane. I can confirm that the words do start to come more easily as time goes on…


It’s entry level of the course run by Dysgu Cymraeg. I think they are their own exam body, so not WJEC.


Who are you doing it with, Bethan? I am doing Uwch 2 part 1 with Cardiff. 2 hours a week for a year. Moving into the slow lane after the intensive courses. No exams for me either.


Sorry for delay in replying. It’s Cwrs Uwch 1 parts 1 and 2 with Ceredigion on a Thursday morning. I think you are ahead of me Sue!!!


Helo bawb - the weather forecast for tomorrow’s Broad Meadow meetup doesn’t look very promising at the moment :cloud_with_rain::cloud_with_lightning: so we might need to revert to Zoom - I’ll confirm one way or the other 1st thing tomorrow morning, though


I’m sorry I won’t be able to make the scwrs tomorrow. Bethan
