Hi Naomi, I saw Marks message posted on 6mths course channel on Slack, I think it is on WSP as well or you could leave message here on the forum.
I think he still has days to fill and Dee has mentioned the Advent challenge in the newsletter. Congratulations on winning your learners award.

Day 8: After a very late night watching the fabulous Gruff Rhys, I had a late start and managed a chat (Slack and old school phone call) with @vikta. We’re good friends meeting through Say Something in Welsh, so it was good to catch up again. Diolch Vikta

Day 11: Ride out with the bike club and a chance to chat with three Welsh speakers on the road and over coffee and cake. Plus a hour chat with @dee today ( Cymraeg gorau!!) about all manner of things but also a chance to say Diolch yn fawr iawn to @dee for all the help she has given me over the past 10months helping me to become a Welsh speaker.


#38

Croeso mawr i ti @Gog! You’re very welcome and I really enjoyed our chat. Could you imagine having that conversation 10 months ago? You’ve done amazing things with your Welsh!


#39

Ha ha. No…I could probably have managed Sut wyt ti? And Diolch yn fawr… but not a great deal more. That’s why I am so grateful to you @nia.llywelyn @aran and catrin an all the SSiW learners who have helped me to get this far.
