To all those excited about Welsh...
Check out this post--- Welsh is really making excellent progress!
We've managed to maintain our good progress and have completed another 1,000 sentences this week. This takes up the important landmark of having written around 50% of the course.
We've also mapped out the remainder of our tree based on a range of Welsh for adults courses that the team members have experience with.
Didn't they just start a month or so ago?
Solar energy is far too low-powered to allow the Welsh team to go this fast :)
But if they were in the middle of the sun, I think it'd work. ;) And let's just admit, their progress is out of this world!
The problem is that Wales (and the rest of Britain), gets very little sun. :)
In the middle of sun. That's fusion reaction in core. Isn't that nuclear power?
Puh-lease. I'd say, "upgrade," but as the Daleks have more sass, I shall say: You are superior in only one respect - you are better at dying. xD
But it doesn't change that I love you <3 OH! OH! OH! We should watch Doctor Who is Russian. What do you think Daleks would be like in Russian? :O
Wow! That is amazing progress!! I love the teams that work really hard and are very passionate about their course. They must be putting so much work and effort into it.
I dropped Irish too due to lack of audio, but rumors have it that Welsh is a bit easier. Plus, we are probably going to get a nice TTS for it, Ivona has a voice for Welsh.
TTS would make such a difference. Not knowing how to pronounce the Irish made is so much harder.
My memory for vocab works a lot better when I know both how it looks and how it sounds - and this is reinforced very much by hearing it spoken as I read it, much more than when merely having to figure it out myself / remember it from when I heard the word once a long time ago in one sentence in another lesson.
TTS all the way for me, if they're not going to spring for recordings of all sentences.
From what I've read on Wikipedia, Welsh has two things that make it simpler, at least at the beginning:
sane and simple spelling instead of whatever crazy stuff Irish does with vowels
no palatized consonants (called 'slender' when talking about Irish)
