Just hauling myself out of the ‘Deep End’, unbuckling my flotation belt of encouragement from hubby and friends, pulling off my flippers aka copious cups of coffee that propelled me forward, and fancying a celebratory brew once I’ve soaked in the hot tub and changed back into cas’ gear.
Our coach did a great job, as always, so I’m delighted with my progress having tackled all the lessons and some, if not all, of the exercises with gusto. I learned a lot, enjoyed the challenge, and have made a note of anything I didn’t manage during the 13 weeks so now I can carry on learning and improving.
Some days it was magical the way words and sentences just rolled off the tongue, and I’d think ‘Where’d that come from?’. Other days felt a bit like slogging through mud, but thanks to the accumulated experience of ups and downs, I knew that if I just pushed on I’d make it to the far end.
It took quite a time commitment and dedication to work at it consistently. Even so, I want to go back over some sections to make notes of patterns that still trip me up. The vocabularies do not provide sample sentences, so that’s on my ‘to do list’—to capture some key expressions I need to practice.
I certainly enjoyed it, felt my Welsh made a quantum leap forward, and would definitely recommend the ‘Deep End’ as being very worthwhile. Thank you!
