Hi @rich, is this happening this(/every) Saturday as well?

I just signed up to SSIW today, otherwise just got 10 days of duolingo and what I half listened to in school over a decade ago.

Hi Rich,

I’d love the link to your Zoom chat please. I really need to start doing some more talking, and this COVID thingy is making it tricky locally right now!

Happy New Year! Semele :slight_smile:

Sat 9th at Noon

All welcome - let me know and I’ll send the link! :sunny:

All activities are for fun - no stress :sunny: :sunny:

A quick gallop around the virtual table :grin: - how long have you been learning - north or south - Welsh connection?

Topic 1: Something I Like To Talk About

What things do you like to talk about normally, day to day eg in English - hobbies, job, the weather! - tell us what they are - and a little bit about them…

… a great opportunity to try in Welsh or practice :slightly_smiling_face:

Topic 2: Covid Restrictions

How do they affect you - working from home? Furlow? Kids, home schooling?! :crazy_face: How are things in your area - what do you normally do - how has this changed?

General catch up:

How is everyone? How have things settled down since Christmas/ New Year?

What is happening in your world - that covid hasn’t stopped!?

Kids Joke To Finish!

Listen, groan o’r tell one. :grin:

It’s a great challenge to look through jokes, work out if they translate and if you can say them in Welsh! :upside_down_face:

Saturday at Noon…on Zoom!

You can always tell a Welsh speaker because when they type in English the word or gets autocorrected to o’r :rofl::rofl:
Looking forward to the meeting Saturday :grinning:

Sat 16th at Noon

All welcome - let me know and I’ll send the link! :sunny:

All activities are for fun :sunny: :sunny:

Quick Intro (no stress): My name is… how long have you been learning - north or south - Welsh connection? (Its really useful to practice/ to be able to say this.)

Topic 1: Learning A Language

Which language(s) have you (tried) to learn? French, German …Welsh?! :grin: When - School, night class, Uni, App, online? Which bits worked and which didn’t ? What would you recommend ?

@caroline-18 is on a Gwent Welsh Course on Sat - she may join us in the lunch break to tell us about it - if she gets a chance.

Topic 2: Game - Word Dice

Roll the dice, tell us what the word means that goes with the number (there will be words for those who have just started) and either give a sentence which uses the word, or a few, if you can! :slight_smile:

How to say?

Do you have any questions that have cropped up during the week?

…and specifically - how do you say "Yes’?

  • ‘Yes, I do’ - for example?

Kids Joke To Finish!

Listen, groan o’r tell one. :grin:

Hi Rich,
I have had a message! I was looking here not on my e mails duh!
Thanks see you later
Jane

When you have a direct message, there will be a little green circle next to your picture in the top right corner of the screen - click on your picture and you should see an unread message with a little envelope icon next to it. (your email will also tell you that you have one - as you’ve seen!)
