Do they actually speak this slow or is it just the audio?


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

Yep, it's slow. You'd usually say "dw i" as one syllable: "dwee".

it is slow just for beginners i guess

So dw is "am*" correct?


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

Yes, but it is probably best to learn dw i = 'I am', as that how you will be using it.

Is " Callum ydw i " also correct? Or does it have to be " Callum dw i" ?


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

It's fine. It's just the fuller form. You could think of it like Callum ydw i "I am Callum" and Callum dw i "I'm Callum".

Okay, thank you for replying.

That is correct or its what i was taught in school

Would the "i" be capitalized or is that just an English thing?
