Done it!


Done it!
(Can I also have a star for persevering with the unfamiliar technology of Slack?!
I think I feel even prouder of that!)




Wow Done it


Done! And it was good fun.




Hi Marilyn! It seems that you have already progressed past this week 6, ‘5 minute’ test and have gone as far as the week 21 test and gained your blue badge! :wink:


Wow what a bumper week!

Excellent efforts each and every one of you! You now have your PINK badges! :smiley:





Diolch yn fawr Catrin.

Every year, I find it useful to start at the beginning and work through all 3 Levels of SSiW by St David’s Day, taking advantage of the different methods offered. This time I am trying the 6-minute-a-day approach (in parallel with my revision), because it has so many excellent suggestions and exercises. I certainly notice and learn something new every time I do this.

This approach gives me the confidence to progress in different directions for the other 10 months a year knowing I have a solid foundation. So each morning I tackle a lesson or two while I prepare food for the day, bake, or do housework, then later I review the vocabulary and make up sentences in a notebook, or listen to Welsh, and there is always the opportunity to Say Something in Welsh too!

I find it fun, the routine particularly comforting during the pandemic, and it keeps the little grey cells active during isolation—not that I feel isolated with this great community here :slightly_smiling_face:

Kudos to Wales in vaccinating so many people already. Canada, has really dropped the ball on that, so it could be months before we can begin mass vaccinations. Lucky I have SSiW to keep me sane and able to be a happy hermit.

Looking upwards…



Done it! Dw i’n mynd i ymarfer siarad Cymraeg mwy :smiley:

Ps dont know how to post!


Done it, trying to explore Slack but getting rather confused, will keep trying.
Good luck to all doing the 5 minutes test :slight_smile:

Just had a thought! does this have to be recorded anywhere on Slack for proof, I noticed that some replies had stated they have recorded them?


The tests where you’re asked to record things have seperate threads on here (not Slack) where you should put them in order to get your coloured ‘badges’. But the first one, the pink badge (this thread) doesn’t have to be recorded.


Dioch yn fawr Siaron:smile:
