That's something the admins (the people with red names - mostly Iestyn or Aran) have to do and they have sort of stopped doing that since the lessons moved over to the new site. But you can always ask that it be added!
Please do read the forum guidelines - they're very short!
And let me know where you live, and I'll put you on the map!

Just completed Challenge 14. There were a couple of instances of there being no gap for the user to insert their Welsh, following Aran's English sentence. I was unable to get the timing, but it was where ddudodd was being drilled (sentences like Ddudodd fy chwaer bod hi'n ...).

Other than that, a real work out and good practice for those short forms! :D

Ooh, thanks for the heads up, we'll see if we can track down what's causing that...:)

It won't be too long - but don't expect us always to be able to magic up five or ten new sessions at the drop of a hat! They take a fair bit of time and effort to put together...:)

That effort is not under estimated nor unappreciated, Aran. News lessons are just kinda addictive!

I found myself caught up around challenge 16, approx. 20:55 with the following phrase: “someone who told me that you want to read that book today.” My response was “rhywun ddweddodd wrtha fi dy fod ti’n moyn darllen y llyfyr ‘na heddiw.” The given response was “rhywun wnaeth ddweud wrtha fi…”

Are these two ways of saying the same thing, or was there something wrong with using the short form in my response? In challenge 15 and earlier in challenge 16, the short form was used in sentences such as “I met someone who said she wants to learn Welsh,” with the response being “Nes I gyfarfod rhywun ddwedodd bod hi eisiau dysgu Cymraeg.” Maybe it’s different because the first example was only a sentence fragment?

Thanks in advance 

(Sorry if any of my spellings are crazy.)
