Speaking Practice Tasks Info on - Completing - Recording - Posting - Coloured Badges


Welcome to the Speaking Practice category!

As you work your way through the Say Something in Welsh courses, one of the things you will be asked to do on a regular basis, is practice your Welsh out loud to aid your learning.

We call this Speaking Practice.

At various intervals throughout the course you will come across prompts encouraging you to complete Speaking Practice tasks. But they are not compulsory.

You will be asked to complete some tasks privately and for your own benefit.

You will be asked to complete some tasks whilst recording yourself doing so. You may then be asked to post some of these recordings in a particular place on the forum. Some of these tasks, once completed, will earn you a coloured badge.

The coloured badge will then sit next to your name and avatar (little thumbnail picture) on the forum. As you work your way through the coloured coded tasks and post them on the forum, your badge will change colour.

  • You start with PINK :white_flower:
  • Then work your way towards RED :red_circle:
  • Then to GREEN :sparkle:
  • Then finally to BLUE :large_blue_circle:

Though not compulsory, these tasks do aid your learning and are a great way to monitor progress.

The following two images explain where in the course these tasks happen -


Please note that the below mentioned 6 month course isn’t currently open to new registrations.

The SSiW lessons now have a new integrated recorder which pops up when a recording task is due.

See the images below (click on them for a clearer picture), which explain where you can find the recorder and how to use it.

You can also record using SoundCloud if you prefer, or any other method you are familiar with.

Please see the next post for instructions on where to post your Speaking Practice Tasks on the forum…


To earn your Speaking Practice Task coloured badges, please use the following threads.

Remember that these are the only tasks you need to share on the forum. :wink:

Please DO NOT post your recordings in separate, ‘new’ threads as this becomes confusing and runs the risk of you missing out on getting your badges.

Diolch yn fawr iawn! :slight_smile:
