Practice Welsh in Leicestershire?


#1

Any one in Leicestershire (Loughborough area) want to practice their Welsh?


#2

@dee - email? :slight_smile:

Hi Jane,
I just added your location into the title of the thread to try and attract a few more local people for you.


#4

Thank you, (ps it’s Janet)


#5

Sorry Janet. I guessed where the break came in your username, and I guessed incorrectly :blush:

Hi Janet

I saw your message on the weekly email. I live near Caernarfon but I’ll be working in Leicester through the autumn so it would be great to have a chance to practise while I’m away. I’d be around Mon, Tues or Weds evenings if that’s any good?

Best wishes

Stine


#7

Yes that would be great, I am only just starting so not very good, I live near Loughborough so where could we meet?


#8

I don’t know the area at all, I’m afraid, so I’m in your hands re a meeting venue. Let me know what suits. The only thing to flag is that I won’t have a car, so it’ll need to be near a railway station. Feel free to message me with some ideas and look forward to meeting you in due course.

Hi, I can get to Leicester station on the half hour every hour. The last train back for me is 9.20. I don’t come to Leicester very often so we would have to just pick somewhere to go. Can you send me a friend request to Facebook? Think I am easy to find, then we could message more easily, cheers, Janet


#10

Hi Janet, have messaged you via this forum (I think!!) so hopefully that will reach you ok. Speak soon, cheers, Stine


#11

Hi, I know this is an old thread now, but is anyone in Leicester/nearby learning Welsh and want to practice more?


#12

Hi Charlie,

I’m moving to Leicester sometime in May, buy haven’t actually practiced a single word with another person.


#13

I’ll pop a note in the Weekly Newsletter and see if we can find you a few more :slight_smile:


#14

Hi, I live in Sileby, I keep trying to learn but hard on your own, would you like to meet up sometime?


#15

Where are you in Leics?


#16

Hi Janet, I live in Westcotes, so not far from the city centre. I’ll warn you now I am very much a beginner (just starting the course today!) so you’re probably a fair bit ahead of me, but I’ll happily meet up for a practice sometime.


#17

Hi Santiago, let me know when you move. Hopefully we can get a few people to come along. I am warning everybody though I am just a beginner when it comes to Welsh, so you may have to bear with me!


#18

No, not very good at all, just a few words and phrases, as I said, hard when you are on your own. I used to meet a lady from Wales who worked at Leicester University but she finished her time there. I used to go on the train and meet her at the station and we would go to a cafe across the road so we could do that if that’s ok, or you could suggest somewhere else. My son has a cottage in Wales so I try a bit of Welsh when I am there, I am a quarter welsh and very proud of that. Cheers


#19

Hi Janet, sounds like we are at a similar level. I’m happy to meet in a cafe near the train station or something similar. It sounds like there’s another chap moving to Leicester in the next few weeks so hopefully we could get a few of us to meet up.


#20

Yes, sounds good, I am retired so afternoons and evenings are fine, I am off to Wales at the end of May for a fortnight, let me know what is best for you, cheers
