Go to the intor course download page, and they are there.

You are doing Northern aren't you? So here's a short cut: http://www.saysomethingin.com/welsh/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2

I've been thinking... oh dear!

I know "gwaith" as time in the sense of "unwaith eto."

It passed me by however that it had other meanings in it's original "Gwaith" spelling.

You live and learn... and by golly, with SSiW I think the learning will never end :faint:

Great, thanks for that.

I'm about to put my latest lesson and practise lessons on the Mp3 player, so now I'll have to add the first of these.

Blimey, I think I'll have to give up sleeping! :wink:

Gwaith da.

You can change avon to afon......after all they are the same thing, same meaning and same pronounciation except avon is corrupted (though I like dialect diversity dont get me wrong ;) ) :lol:

However:

If I see "avon" written down I would say "ayevon" (as in the River Avon).

But afon I would pronounce afon (as in Afon Conwy).

It's like calling an English Ivor, Ifor. That's got me, quite innocently, in trouble a couple of times :sad: :shush:
