As the title says. In what situations do you use the different versions of 'I'. I was taught dwi'n hoffi for 'I like'.

But are there generally accepted rules on when to use them, or are they interchangeable?

Ydw = am.

I = I.

Ydw i = I am.

Dw i = short for "ydw i".

Dwi = the same, without a space.

The 'n in "dw i'n hoffi coffi" is the word "yn" which is used a lot in Welsh. I'm sure that will be covered later in the course, so don't worry about that now.
