Does anyone have any tips on how to master these two? The Week 7 email says don’t get discouraged and I’m supposed to be moving on to Week 8 today but I still can’t get through these two lessons without using the pause button a lot of the time… Diolch!
Challenges 12-14 are notoriously demanding, but the general advice is just to press on regardless. However, without using the pause button on a continuous basis I would never have got through any of the challenges. But I’m now, a year or more on, able to hold my own in Cymraeg and am having regular chats on Skype and the Slack website. Here are a few links to previous discussions on these particular challenges:
Helo Mari, I’m at the same stage as you, and I plan to just press on regardless in the hope that some of it will have lodged somewhere in my head for future use! I had to use the pause button just to try to remember the sentences in English I was supposed to be saying in Welsh. Kept getting things wrong too. But, I’m taking all the advice, not trying to master everything in those lessons, and moving on.
That really is NOT a problem! In fact, from the sound of it, you’re probably doing better with these two nasty ones than about 90% of other people…
There’s some great encouragement on these challenges in Slack from people who’ve gone through them - if you’re doing one of the supported courses
I’ve just finished challenge 19 and I thought I’d pop back here with a bit of encouragement. I struggled immensely with challenges 12 & 13 and thought I’d never progress past there. I simply couldn’t remember the phrases. (Hmm…not too encouraging so far!). But I pushed on regardless and forgot these 2 challenges. After challenge 18 I thought I’d try them again. Well…either Cat and Aran have recorded whole new phrases in that couple of weeks, or…(more likely!), the process works! I found challenges 12 & 13 much easier.
