A lovely, natural accent you have there @JasonGriffiths!


#800

Diolch Dee. That’s nice to hear as my English accent is more Eastenders than Pobol y Cwm.


#801

:clap::clap::clap:


#802

This was really clear and easy to understand even though I’m learning North…da iawn !


#803

Gwych. Dw i’n deall i t’i!


#804

Okay here’s my first soundcloud. Pretty boring compared to others as I just have words from the first ten weeks or so! But a start


#805

Da iawn Paul! Off to a great start :slight_smile:


#806

Well, here goes; but now that I have recorded the five sentences, I’ve got this horrible feeling that I’ve just strung random Welsh words together!


#807

Thank you for posting, you’re sentences are great and you sound amazing :slightly_smiling_face:


#808

You sound great. Well done Helen and thank you for sharing


#809

Diolch Sam! That’s really nice to hear. Just a few words can be very encouraging and this forum is great for that. Good luck with your journey too. What challenge are you on now?


#810

Thank you, I’m on challenge 12. My brain really is melting :crazy_face:


#811

That was very clear @yogi-b and made complete sense. In some respect, we’re all stringing random Welsh words together, but that’s how one builds up sentences.

By the way, I’m old enough to remember Yogi B the first time round!


#812

Here’s my 5 minute recording - there’s a mistake or two in there, but obviously I’ve improved massively in the last week or two! :wink:


#813

That sounded very good, @julian-2 - da iawn!


#814

Thanks AlanP, and I also remember Yogi the first time, my wife says I remind her of him, Not quite the “film star” looks I was hoping for :slight_smile:


#815

Here are my (less than) 5 minutes worth of practice sentences.

#817

Here’s my first go at recording a 5 minute practice! Might redo it not on a Sunday night later.

Listen to Sentence practice by Terry Dobbins on #SoundCloud

One of those definitely doesn’t make sense :sweat_smile:
