My plans will need to fit in around work and especially family. This is why the structure will be important for me to get the most out of them. I am think more along the lines of increased learning and speaking opportunities, with funds set aside to pay for them.

Ar hyn o bryd, dw i'n astudio: Cwrs 3 Gwers 20 (fersiwn y Gogledd)
Yn ddiweddar, dw i wedi bod yn gwrando ar Meinir Gwilym

Wow great, I will keep that in mind, many thanks!

I've had the idea in my head for a number of years that I would save up some money, take 6-9 months off, and spend the time doing a couple more A Levels, ostensibly in something business-related, so that I can win approval from my company, but also fill my time with a couple of leisure-related studies as well, and Welsh slots nicely into that category.

I reached (southern) cwrs 2 gwers 18, and struggled. Went back to the beginning of course 2, by way of revision, and light relief! Currently revising gwers 9.
Please feel free to correct my Welsh, and if you can explain why that's even better!
Currently doing Mynediad 2 at evening classes.

Shw mae, Jan?



I just posted it today, by coincidence.
