Radio Cymru today (13/12/2018)


#1

I’m taking part in a lunchtime discussion programme on Radio Cymru today called Hanner Call.

It is being broadcast at 12.30 and there will be a contribution from @Nicky as well.

I’ll post more details later…


#3

Forgot about recording this! Currently en route to London so will Iplayer later on :slight_smile:


#4

I’m not sure I can remember the last time I listened to Radio Cymru when Nicky wasn’t speaking… :wink: :star: :star2:


#5

Haha. I happened to be listening and didnt think anything of it at first, and then thought - Hang on, thats the radio I’m listening to. :grinning:

Here’s the link to listen to the programme https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m0001k1v

Wow that’s great. That’s one I try to listen to regularly (in catchup mode, iplayer/Sounds, not live), so great to have a(n even more) familiar voice (or two) on there! :slight_smile:

I had rather a nice surprise listening to this. Usually, I can pick out quite a few words but not full sentences at all.
This time I realised that even though I didn’t identify sentences, I was able to understand the gist of the program and didn’t find it difficult to listen to the speakers. In fact I listened to the whole program twice! All the voices were interesting and I actually wanted to listen to find out what was going on.
So, even though I didn’t understand some of the points, the gist was much better than usual. (If that’s how to spell gist?!)
I am hoping this means I am making progress! :slightly_smiling_face:

Definitely making progress @annmoore! Every time you listen to some Welsh, you’ll be increasing your understanding and making another step towards your goal. :star2:


#10

Thanks for the encouragement Dee :kissing_heart:


#11

Seems to be! :slight_smile:

Interesting word:

Welsh equivalent seems to be “sylwedd”.


#12

Thank you very much! The response on this forum really is great. Well done!


#13

Really enjoyed this programme, and pleased to discover it, as I will definitely be listening regularly now!


#14

Thank you so much for all your kind responses to this thread! I thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the programme and have been asked if I would be willing to return again in the future, I’ll keep you posted ! :smile:


#15

I’ve got friends on the inner walls now! It’s all part of my 5 step program to overthrow the BBC. Hoping for a Summer 2020 total shutdown and takeover :rofl:


#16

I think that’s a project we can all get behind… :wink:


#17

…and hasn’t your friend from MamCymru just been on Heno?


#18

Indeed. We’ve been working pretty hard on her new venture for the last fortnight or so back and forth, there were 80 people signed up before going on Heno last night, so I dread to look at the inbox to see how many have signed up since!! :smiley:
