I've taken the plunge and am going 'native'

Postby kalenwolf » Tue Apr 26, 2011 6:20 am

I've found that if i dont use what i'm learning regularly or miss a week between lessons b/c life gets in the way [damn u life! :evil: ] i tend to blank on things when i get back to it :cry: so after being strong armed by Dee :wink: :harhar: on another part of the forum, i'm off to a welsh learners weekend :clap: though depending on how advanced they are i might end up :shush: for 2 days.
to say i'm nervous would quite possibly be 1 of the biggest understatements of my life :faint:

life may not be the party we imagined, but while we're here we might as well dance

I'm amused by the thought that I could strong-arm anyone :mochyn: I would struggle to reach higher than most people's kneecaps! :lol:
But don't worry Kalenwolf - you should see how good SSiWers become at miming on bootcamp :wink:

Good work, KW - if you just keep on jumping in, you'll find yourself swimming at some point. As Rob's signature says, no-one ever drowned by getting out of their depth in a Welsh conversation...:wink:

Please DO read the forum guidelines. And how about putting up a poster or two in your locality?
