How have you got on with using Welsh in the real world?
Any stories from fellow learners are always nice to hear!
Well... in a dream I had the other night I was able to shout "Dw i wedi symud fy ngharafan!" very confidently.
Dwi'n mynd i fynd i Gymru yn y gwanwyn. I will share how horribly I embarrass myself! ;) ^_^
If you make the mistake of going to Pembrokeshire (as I did) you won't find anyone who speaks Welsh with whom to embarrass yourself!
Dim problem. Dwi'n mynd i Ynys Mon a Gogledd Cymru! Entertainment for others guaranteed, heh.
Good choice! Highest rate of Welsh speakers, I think. To be fair, we didn't choose Pembrokeshire for its number of speakers, but because it's fairly close to us (Somerset) and quite pretty.
I was looking at Pembrokeshire too, because of the natural beauty, and St. David's. But language aside, I chose Angelsey because I can take the ferry over from Ireland and avoid the trains! :)
Gary, I'll be walking the coastal path, and staying in a several places! ^_^
A lot of us speak Welsh here in Ynys Môn. Pob Lwc i chi. Cadwch mewn cysylltiad. Keep in touch!
T-shirts have been created to alleviate the problem that plagues so many learners of not being able to find Welsh speakers in Wales.
The idea is: advertise yourself as a Welsh speaker and other speakers might say something to you. . .and English speakers won't. :-)
Come to Cardiff there are lots of cafes/pubs where you can practice with friendly folks. Or register at one of the courses at the uni for adult learners where it is based on speaking Welsh - or register for a "Sadwrn Siard" - speaking Saturday at the uni and you go into a group at your level to be able to improve - and have some fun. If you look you will find. You don't need to travel miles.
