Question Ping Pong :ping_pong:

Think of a question you’d like to answer yourself. :wink:

When it’s your turn, choose someone who hasn’t had a go yet and ask them your question - they will answer …then ask it you back!

Then it’s their turn. :thinking:

Use it as a chance to practice your conversational jigsaw pieces, or, something completely different if you prefer :jigsaw: e.g.

  • Where do you live?
  • How long have you been learning Welsh?
  • Do you like X, Y o’r Z
  • but…absolutely anything :slight_smile:

If we have time…

This Week/ Next Week

…see if you can find one which works in Welsh or listen if you prefer (…thinking about it and finding one which works is surprisingly interesting! :wink:)

Everything is just for fun - listen if you like.

  • Do you believe in alien life? Why or why not?

It’s seems like it might be a good week to practice saying how far we’ve got with our Welsh again?

My Welsh Journey

It’s a really useful to be able to talk about, whether you are talking to other learners or not :slight_smile: so tell us about one or all of these (the more the merrier! )…:thinking:

  • ( I am…eg name :grin:)
  • I’ve been learning for…?
  • I have been doing the north or south course?
  • I am learning Welsh because…
  • (…the Welsh connection?)
  • How far have you got?
  • What are doing now with your Welsh right now?
  • (eg SSIW lesson, books, TV programmes, classes, other)

…and, as time permits…

With the Euros just getting going how about you…

Tell us about…

…a competition you were involved in at some point in your life that was notable / funny/ terrible in some way! :grin:

One sentence, ten, or, as many as you like - the floor is yours! :snowboarder: As usual, it’s all for practice so you can make the whole thing up to suit your practice needs. :snowboarder:

…and, if there is any time left…

What’s happening…?

…with you at the moment?
