The '5 Minutes' Test - recordings


#367

The red badge is for posting your ‘5 minutes’ test :slight_smile:
Onto green when you post your first question!


#368

I posted mine a couple of days ago… ah, hang on… I think I can see my red badge! Diolch yn fawr


#369

Here is my recording made a couple of weeks ago of the first questions. I can spot two mistakes, but that’s fine (remember/forget and not softening after wnes I), but I wanted to share the original and not make a new one. Here it is:


#370

Well, that was painful - and I already spotted a dweud that should have been a siarad! O daro!

These are the ten questions from week 6 of the 26 week course. I would thank Dee for her helpful advice once again

Just moved this here @malnet3. Someone started that other thread, but it’s not the ‘official’ one. You’re in the right place now, and you’ve got your red badge for saying all your 5-minute sentences. Da iawn ti!


#374

If it’s any consolation, I keep making this mistake too! My other favourite is saying “ymarfer” instead of “(g)wella”. Oh, and softening when I shouldn’t. I keep saying “Wnes i ddim gofio” forgetting that the “(d)dim” takes the mutation so there isn’t one for “cofio”. Still, it would be boring if we got it all right straight away!


#375

Well Soniakw that worked like a dream. That was a pleasure to listen to because you have gentle intonation and an obvious love of Welsh.


#376

Well here goes. Let’s hope it works :upside_down:


#377

Well, here’s my effort. Not very interesting sentences, I’m afraid! The old brain went a bit blank on me a few times! Is there a minimum standard required?


#378

Can I be cheeky and ask for some feedback on mine? I’d like to know if anything is outright wrong or doesn’t make sense. If anyone has some time, I’d really appreciate it.


#379

It was great - understood all of it, enjoyed the dreadful cat - you’re doing very well… :slight_smile:


#380

Cheers Aran, appreciate it! The horrible cat is the bane of my life…

#382

Ti’n swnio mor naturiol! You sound so natural! :star2:


#383

Diolch yn fawr iawn yn wir Dee, your support is BENDIGEDIG!!


#384

It’s painful for me to listen to but… it’s done!


#385

Well DONE! Embracing that pain is a huge step forward… :thumbsup: :star2:

(the heatwave is here, so if I sound exhausted, it’s the heat, not Welsh :joy:)
