Done it! Nice way to practice speaking Welsh - never did something like this before. Thanks for the challenge:)

Done it!


#1176

I did it. Not very ambitious sentences but I did it. Unbelievable as I am hopeless at languages and also 70.


#1177

Done it


#1178

1 min 32 secs 1st try, but using short sentences and keeping to words taught in the challenges (apart from ‘Cartref’, which was much used !) Most of those posting on here seem to be using a much wider vocabulary - are they on the more intensive course?

As an aside, I’m feeling a bit let down by C1:6 - ok set a test, but couldn’t you include at least a little new material as well? - what am I going to do for the next week?

Done it!


#1180

Done. Bit basic, mind… :slight_smile:

Some people have picked up some Welsh from other sources, e.g. learnt some in school or attended a few evening classes, and they include words from there, but others just use what they’ve learnt in the challenges. That’s perfectly fine. The objective is to get you thinking of sentences for yourself with the Welsh that you have, so if that’s what you’ve done, that’s great!

Sorry, I’m not quite sure what you mean by this - Challenge 1? Level 1, Challenge 6? Or are you referring to the old Course 1, lesson 6? What is the test that you mention?

Do you mean when you’re asked to go back and run through Challenge 1 again to see how it feels? If you’re happy with Challenges 1 to 5 and you want to move on this week, just send an email to admin@saysomethingin.com and asked to be moved ahead a week. There is no problem with that :slight_smile:


#1182

Done, 2.47 assuming ‘that I need’ is ‘bod dw i esiau i fi’ ?

And basic because of confidence which makes my mind go blank and then: On i’n trio cofio beth i ddeud…

update: I said it wrong! it’s “bod ma eisiau i fi” oh,well. Ma eisiau i fi ymarfer mwy :slight_smile:


#1183

Hey thanks :grinning: I’m pink.


#1184

Done! :raised_hands:


#1185

Done it!!


#1186

I haven’t cared about measuring the time before, but this time I did, and most of the sentences weren’t that short. So I can allow myself now to announce, with good conscience: I passed the test! Yay! :metal: :grin:


#1187

Completed the task. Not hugely complex sentences but helping me to get further than I’ve ever been able via previous attempts … I wish I’d found this years ago before Dad passed - would have been great to have attempted a conversation with him yn Gymraeg

I’m not clear on what happens now …
