How about "No, We must not go?" Is it correct?

That would be ... rhaid i ni beidio â mynd

What about - We don't have to go?


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

As in the original sentence - Does dim rhaid i ni fynd.

Would the 'no' change in this case? Or would it stay the same? (I.e. Nac oes, mae rhaid i ni beidio â mynd.)

Have a look at the tips and notes for this unit, they explain the difference between the two negative sentences.

Are tips and notes only available on computer

They're only available on the website.

If you're on a mobile device, you'll have to visit the Duolingo website in the browser to see them - they're not available in the Duolingo app itself.

You can access the web version via mobile web browser, as I frequently do.

Tough one. I am learning how to structure a welsh sentence by writing the literal translation. But this translates as "No, not must we go".

Literal translations between English and Welsh can be awkward or wrong. However:

  • does dim ... - there is/are no ...
