S’mae pawb. I’d be grateful if I could be guided to a summary of the various “offers” on the SSIW. I hear of the six minute plan, and advanced listening, but I can’t find anywhere that the threads are all drawn together. I’m at level three stage 22, but although I live in the Conwy valley, lockdown and shielding have put a temporary stop to my Welsh conversation. I’ve been mouldering along at the old three quid or so a month. Time to expand, but how?
hello Steve, and firstly da iawn for getting to where you’ve got to! That’s an amazing achievement and brilliant stuff indeed.
To answer your question, the advanced listening practices are available to you on your existing subscription. When you log into your account, at the top of the page you should see an option marked ‘Learn’. Click on that, and you get a drop-down menu of all the learning options open to you with your subscription. Click on the ‘Advanced Content’ option, and that’ll take you to the listening practices.
It also sounds to me as though it’s worth you trying the Welsh Speaking Practice (WSP) groups. You’ll need to be a member of this group on Slack, so if you’re interested, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can add you. Info on what’s available in WSP and what events are coming up is regularly posted on here and in the weekly newsletter, and also via the SSiW Facebook group if you do Facebook.
Hope that helps you, and keep on keeping on with your learning! Cheers, Stine
