For the Welsh contributors.

Just would like to say that when I saw the course was complete I ran into the other room picked up my little sister and spun her around then sprinted back to the computer.

The question is.. Who wouldn't do the same?

In all that time though spinning your sibling, you could have started more Welsh ;P

I suppose, nobody wants to learn with me, it's a tragedy. D:

That same issue pops up again and again :( Finding a way to practice a language with no abundance of native speakers online :/

I started a skype call with a colleague here in England with "Bore da, Mark! Sut ywty ti?" and was surprised when he (from Birmingham) replied in Welsh! Perhaps there are more speakers out there than we realised?

She must be confused.

She yelled at me and told me to go away jaja xD.

Are you Spanish?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tatonka71

Yeah, I don't type in English much, sorry.

Your English is good. I've never known a Spanish person learn Welsh. Why do you want to learn it?

There's actually an entire Welsh speaking community in Patagonia, Argentina. Not saying he's from there, just saying. :]

I'm not Latino, I just speak more to Spanish speakers than I do English speakers, I have more in common with Latinos xD. That's strange that there is whole community of Welsh speakers in Argentina, I wouldn't expect that.

Ditto...well, sort of. I was at work, ran into my bosses office and screamed, "Welsh is in beta! AAAAHHH!" then proceeded to my office and did the very first skill. I was so excited.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Tatonka71

Your boss wasn't bothered? AND he uses Duolingo? Who do you work for? xD

I was on break, and she is super cool. I work for a homelessness program which helps people transition back into permanent, stable housing

I've used duolingo in the past for spanish italian and polish but when I saw welsh on here I was so excited. I'm from Caerdydd and I didn't learn much welsh in school but it's already shaping up well :)
