You’re doing well @terrance-dobbins! The more you push yourself through those, the better your Welsh will become.


#820

Well, this definitely hurt my head to make it. And if you play it at the same speed as Listening Practice 10 it may actually sound like speech!!

Here is my first collection of sentences for public consumption (if the posting works) - it has to get better than this but this is reality at present!!

Wow @nigelhackney, you have really set the bar high here, most impressive :smiley: I’m off for some ymarfer and hopefully a lot of gwella!! R

@kate-murphy-1 If that was your first attempt at recording and sharing then Well Done! I could understand all you said and you appear to have the accent and pronunciation just about right. Good job!! R

Listen to 13 Daily sentences #1 by Charlotte Lunn on #SoundCloud

I’m just gonna slap this in here. I realise on listening to a few others that there are mistakes and I was less prepared but I just wanted it over with! I will revisit and repost. I’m loving the course and thank fully not as poor at Welsh as my recordings :joy:
