Sounding like a natural Welsh speaker

Postby samweekes » Fri May 20, 2011 1:17 pm

Just a brief note to say that although it is not necessary by now to say so, as we all know it to be the case, SSIW really is the BEST way to learn this wonderful language. Now that I'm settling down to life in Aberystwyth I'm able to speak Welsh most days, as in I hold conversations with people rather than just 'hello, how are you?' etc. I'm delighted to report that, recently, during two of these chats on two different days and with different people I was mistaken for a native of North Wales! I had to explain that I have some Welsh ancestry, as in great granparents but that I was born and raised in England. Thanks once again to our priceless SSIW team :star:

No, :star: to you!
No one ever drowned by getting out of their depth in a Welsh conversation.

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