Oxford Welsh learners group


#1042

It occurred to me that I won’t make this Thursday’s meet up because I need to be in Surrey :sob::sob::sob: I am pretty rusty after half term because the kids won’t let me listen to ssiw in the car … despite also frequently complaining about the fact that they aren’t learning Welsh like their cousin :roll_eyes:


#1043

Oh, that’s a pity! :disappointed: Do you think you’ll be able to make it the following week or is it looking as if Thursday’s might be problematic? Laura has suggested a Saturday panad+sgwrs but I guess that could be diifficult for you.

Maybe the plantos could be distracted from their complaints with some Welsh language comics… :slight_smile:

Thankfully it’s a one-off this Thursday, and I should be back to sgwrsing up a storm next week! Saturdays are not great for me, unfortunately, given the children’s busy social lives and increasing sporty commitments. I am mostly a gwasanaeth tacsi :confused:

Thank you! I will get them to take a look!

Hi all,
A quick bump about tonight’s meeting in Big Society at 8.30!

I spotted a myfyrwraig in college today with a Welsh dictionary and grammar book and was able to use the immortal ‘Dych chi’n siarad Cymraeg?!’ from across the corridor - started a really nice chat about learning and have (hopefully) helped a new learner meet some speakers!

Great! Well done, Laura!


#1047

As @Laura_P_87 says we had a new person along last night - Welsh being only 1 of their 4 or 5 languages!

We’re trying to find out a place to watch the rygbi on Saturday but since England are playing at the same time, it may be hard to find anywhere showing it…any ideas welcome!


#1048

Hi all,

The Thursday evening group have found a pub in Oxford that won’t be showing the England game that clashes with Wales tomorrow! We’ll be meeting from 2pm in the Marsh Harrier, Marsh Road if anyone fancies joining.

*Wednesday evening group :slight_smile:


#1050

In previous years Cymdeithas Dafydd ap Gwilym included watching Wales rugby matches in the Royal Blenheim on their term card, but this year they’ve only included football - od iawn!

Time for a reminder about this week’s meetups :slight_smile::

  • Monday, 5 Nov, from 11am in Welsh Mike’s Bap Cafe, Abingdon Rd

Also if you have a Saturday free, don’t forget Laura’s suggestion of a panad + sgwrs:

Hwyl, John
PS :santa: and don’t forget the Welsh carol service in Jesus College Chapel at 4pm on Mon 26 Nov

I probably can’t make it this coming week. There is a slight chance that y dyn sy’n trwsio peiriannau gwnïo (the sewing machine repair man) might come early enough on Thursday for me to get a bus to Oxford, but it is not very likely.

Morning all! Didn’t make it last week due to sick child (don’t feel too sympathetic, it seems it was a Halloween Haribo overload…) and now I’m catching up with all the things that had to be put off because of it! I’m scribbling out today and Thursday and giving myself a nice long run up to next week.
Until then, I’m having ALL the Haribo…
:candy::candy:

Is anyone from here planning to go to Big Society tonight?


#1055

Hope you had a good meetup at Big Society tonight @Laura_P_87

Also a quick reminder to all about tomorrow’s (Thursday) midday meetup in The Royal Blenheim


#1056

Dw i dal yn aros am y dyn sy’n trwsio peiriannau gwnïo. Sorry, I am not going to make it today.
