What's the difference between "licio" and "hoffi"?

They mean the same, but licio is more common in native speech, especially in North Wales. It is of course borrowed from 'like' in English. Did the system show you 'licio' when you did the question, it shouldn't have this early in the course.

I take it Holyhead is a city?

Yes indeed. It's on Holy Island, next to the island of Anglesey (Ynys Môn) off the north-west coast of Wales.
