Everyone welcome - let me know and I’ll send the link! Everything is just for fun - listen if you like! :sunny:

Tell us about…

… Something about one or more of the following:

  • Favourite Animal …pet and /or wild animal - why?
  • Favourite Tree or plant - wild and / or in the garden - why?
  • Favourite Food - home made or eaten out

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

…and, if there is any time left…

What’s happening…?

…with you at the moment?

Kids Joke to finish…

…see if you can find one which works in Welsh.

Topic…

….thanks for the topic suggestions that have come in so far - keep them them coming if you have any more ideas!

There is one from Helen and another from Carys which overlap which seems like fate - so how about completing Helen’s sentence below…[Carys suggested practicing the conditional - but answer however you want / can…]:

  • If I ruled the world…

Topic…

  • I’ve a small challenge for those of you who were with us last week and described things that trip you up in Welsh…are you able to give a short and simple description this week of how one of those things is supposed to work (in Welsh)! :slightly_smiling_face:

  • if you weren’t there last week you could still do the above if you are happy to pick it up and run with it…tell us the thing and how it should work

  • Alternatively, you could say what would be in your Room 101 (something you absolutely hate)

…and, if there is any time left…

I really like this suggestion - the answers should be interesting…

  • What gift and/ or advice would you give to someone who is just about to start learning Welsh?

  • Feel free if you want to add something to the ‘things that trip you up in Welsh’ thread…or describing ‘how those things should work’ - which is a great way of sorting it out in your head :thinking:

  • …or of course what would be in your Room 101 (something you absolutely hate)

…and, if there is any time left…

How can I join the group? I live in Hebden Bridge and it’d be good to practise speaking a bit more with other Yorkshire-based folk
Thanks

  • If you were going to learn something else in the future (I.e. apart from Welsh :grin:) what would it be? :thinking:

…you could use this to practice the conditional if you want (or not)…there could be one answer or many - your choice!

There has been quite a bit of conversation about exams/ qualifications this week, so this fits well:

  • What will be your next exam or qualification of whatever sort? :thinking: (You could practice the conditional here again if you want!)

  • What was your last, favourite, least favourite, significant or enjoyable qualifaction? You choose - one answer or multiple answers - it’s up to you…

A Yes/ no game…

  • Come with three simple questions - which provoke an initial yes/ no answer (… in different tenses - if you can? :thinking:)

  • Ask your questions to someone who hasn’t had a turn yet

  • Everyone will try to say yes or no - in the correct tense! :grin:…and, if you want / can, expand on your answer with a sentence or two…:thinking: Then it’s your turn !

  • E.g.: Do you have a garden? Did you learn Welsh at school? Will you go on holiday this year?
