The '5 Minutes' Test


#623

Meant to add that I look forward to the time when I can vary these and make more complicated sentences :slight_smile:


#624

Done! Hopefully I’ll get around to a hangout soon, seem to have missed them so far. Hoffen I siarad mwy ac ymarfa gyda chi!


#625

There’s a subtle but useful difference between building what you’ve been told to build, and building something without a prompt - we’ve found it works very well as a lead in to starting to increase your flexibility, so you’re going in the right direction… :slight_smile:

The hangouts are really helpful, Ellen - hope you manage to make one soon! :slight_smile: :star2:


#626

Yay! I have a speech bubble :D. Diolch!


#627

Done it :slight_smile:


#628

Just completed the 5 minute challenge - feeling a bit YAY and then sometimes a bit overwhelmed but am so encouraged with what I have learned already - thank you :smile:


#629

That’s how the journey looks for most people, so I’d say you’re firmly on the right track… :star: :star2:


#630

Done - though my favourite bit of this week was re-doing challenge one! :slight_smile:


#631

Dw i wedi gorffen!


#632

I’m done! I’m having to change some things as my daughters (in their Welsh school) day things differently. Eisau for want, angen for need. It gets tricky at times!


#633

It can always get messy and headachy with kids - just plough on through regardless… :wink:


#634

Done!


#635

Done it


#636

Ah…about a minute and a half :no_mouth:


#637

Os gwelwch yn dda, @aran ? Cwru heb os nac oni bai-dw i isio siarad yr gair ‘help’ i gynorthwyo?
Please,Aran? Beer without a shadow of a doubt Is going to help (ok, I cheated because I neither knew the word or the future tense. Week one…:hushed:


#638

A minute and a half in Week 1 is going just fine… :star:


#639

Done it but keep closing my eyes to recall words, lol


#640

I, too have found that closing my eyes while doing the challenges helps my concentration. HOWEVER - I find myself doing it when I am speaking to people “in the wild” when I need to think hard - which can be funny or embarrassing! I MUST try to stop myself doing it! In the meantime, if you see someone walking around trying to speak Welsh with their eyes shut it could well be me!


#641

Meant to say last week - done! Really enjoying


#642

I just hope that none of you who speak Welsh with your eyes shut are driving at the time! :rofl:
