The '5 Minutes' Test - recordings


#614

My apologies I misread this task and only recorded one sentence - I’m so late in doing this that it was a month ago and realise that I will sound different now so haven’t added the rest.


#615

Sorry I had recorded but not uploaded to sound cloud, here it is: https://soundcloud.com/user-920123134/all-again

At last! I’ve worked out how to do it. So here is my 5 minutes test recording, although it is only a little over 2 minutes. It is full of mistakes, but I gave it my best shot.

here goes, press reply Gayle, just press reply! (where’s the fingers crossed emoji when you need it?)

Posted my soundcloud today, then realised that I have recorded the second set of practice sentences instead of the first. Is that OK or do i need to go back a step?

Also, I don’t actually have a speech bubble at all? Why would that be? Have i missed something?


#618

@dee
Beautifully clear Gayle. You shall no doubt be bubbled :wink:


#619

I agree with @Sean-O - very clear and natural!


#620

Hoffwn i fynd i Batagonia hefyd! - I’d like to go to Patagonia too!


#621


#622

Da iawn @rafe! You really pushed yourself to get through those and you succeeded brilliantly!


#623

I should of done this task ages ago but never did. Here’s my sentence recording. Listening back i can hear i’m desperately trying to avoid going round in a loop with what i’m saying. More speaking practice for me i think!


#624

Here it is . Enjoy/Jojo/Mwynhau??


#625

Well done Robert! I did learn mwynhau at college but most local people say joio. I live in Goslas, near Crosshands.


#626

Just wondering. Is ‘like a fish out of water,’ a common idiom in Cymraeg, as it is in English? If so, how would we say it. Fel pysgod allan o dŵr?
I use it a lot in English but wouldn’t want to use it in Welsh in case I get it wrong!


#627

Ask Dyfrig Ann, he’ll probably know. xx


#628

Syniad da Ali, diolch.
I will ask him Monday. I can come now as my daughter isn’t coming until Tuesday. Wela i ti nos Llun!? xx


#629

This recording is so embarrassing and I was so tempted to re-record it but obviously that is not the nature of this method or the spirit. SO when my bubble goes red it will match my face tone. I just hope now that I have posted the right one of all the sentences not just the single word!!


#630

Hope this works. Really don’t want to have to do all that again. Soundcloud brings me out in hives!
I’m off to hide in a cupboard somewhere …


#631

I feel your pain Den. Just posted my own. This is all way outside my comfort-zone, but I think that’s part of the point!


#632

Diolch Annmoore, dw i’n dod o Llandeilo ond fi’n bwy yn Lloygr nawr.


#633

Hopefully this works! I’m finally getting around to posting the sentences I recorded weeks ago :slight_smile:
