In English, not in Welsh - just yet!

Postby Aran » Tue Jan 20, 2009 3:37 pm

This is where you can ask any questions you have - about the course and how it works, or about learning Welsh more generally.

We'll try and answer as soon as possible - although since both Iestyn and I seem to be having children left right and centre, you might have to forgive us if we're a little slow sometimes... ;)


As you work your way through the first course, you'll have questions, and panics, and maybe even occasional bouts of knocking your head against the wall (learning a language is like that!).

Post them in here, and we will do our best to help you keep smiling...:D You'll also find it helpful to talk to other people at the same level of learning as you are.

The one word of warning we give in here - please don't yet start trying to write in Welsh!

There's a very important reason for this - as with any language, the way we write things in Welsh will often look similar to words you know how to pronounce in English - but it usually ISN'T!

So if you get through the first course without doing any reading or writing, you will probably have a MUCH better accent - because you will have been concentrating on what you ACTUALLY hear, rather than how your mind tricks you into THINKING the words you see should be pronounced...:D
