Dyddau 3 a 4

Two days in one for this post as Dydd Tri (Unedau 4 a 5) was a killer - in a monumental move we switched tense and subject at the same time. Needless to say Es i i'r dafarn!

Uned 6 was less work (I forget what the topic was) and Uned 7 was Y Tywydd (The weather) which is a nice straightforward thing to do in the afternoon and also gave me to opportunity to corner our Tutor (who comes from Blaenau Ffestiniog) and ask her Ydych i'n nabod Glyn?. Sadly, the answer was "No". Where the hell am I going to get my Glyn2Win T-Shirt from now then?

Something I've really noticed is accents. Now there are two people in my group with good solid Welsh accents and a few (I include myself in this) with wishy washy mixes of their standard accent and the Welsh words. And then there are the few - the brave - the frightening. Yep, I'm talking about people who speak English with an English/Soft Welsh accent and Welsh with some kind of Germano-Spanish twang.

The first time I heard one of our group speak I thought 'Ooh! Cosmopolitan! We have someone from Germany here'. Nope, "Dwi'n dod o Loger" they said. Now I can't stop thinking about it.... perhaps we should have some kind of accent coaching as part of the course?

Mae'r cwrs yn mynd i'r Eisteddfod yfory. The course are off the the Eisteddfod tomorrow (I can just about say that much at this point!). Unfortunately, I can't go as I've a prior arrangement - I thought it might be next Saturday but no such luck. I might try and arrange to go with some friends because it's been so long since I went to the Maes.

One recurring theme, in case anyone wants to put in the effort: No one has a tape player to listen to the course tapes on. CD anyone? Even MP3? It is 2006. I'd do it myself and put them on the Internet but I've no clue as to the copyright.

Just a quick thanks to people who are commenting - it's great to have your support - Diolch yn bawb. Friendly corrections appreciated, as are your own experiences of Wlpan or other courses.

  • The course tapes *are* available on MP3 - one of my students converted them last year, and Phyl Brake has copies.

    I have them all on the Mac at home - let me if you need them and I'll stick them on the web.

  • (Best to email me - myname@gmail.com - if you want copies.]

  • Gyda llaw - mae'n wych o beth dy fod di'n wneud y blog hwn. Mae *rhaid* i'r pethau 'ma cael eu trafod, ac yn agored.

    By the way, it's so great you're doing this this. These things *need* to be discussed, and openly.

  • Paid anghofio'r blog-gwrdd (blog meet) ar Dydd Sadwrn y 12fed o Awst. If you get a chance to get to the Maes that day

  • dont forget to write all this (well maybe not quite all of it) on that bit of paper they give you at the end of the course. they can only improve if people like you speak out!

    pob lwc with the rest of the course

  • O'n i ar y cwrs yn 1997, ac roedd y profiad yn ardderchog!

    I took the course in 1997 - great experience! My Welsh improved radically. But you have to use it or lose it, so start talking!

  • Dw i'n dod o Efrog Newydd, so you can imagine what my accent sounds like!

    BTW, Nic, if you are reading this, I'd love a copy of those MP3s...

  • Helo,

    Syniad gwych i ysgrifennu blog yn ystod y cwrs. Dwi'n gwneud y cwrs eleni hefyd (yn Grwp 4). Edyrchaf ymlaen at glywed eich profiadau.

    [Great idea to keep this blog. I'm on the course as well. Look forward to hearing your experiences]

  • @Nic - great to know. I'll send you an email (although it seems like more than I will want them! Publicity required!).

  • @Paul: I've been starting to think that myself. How do you find is the best way to start chatting without eliciting a stream of ethusiastic (but complex!) Welsh which you can't understand?

    @Jessica: It's a small world, we have someone from Efrog Newydd on the course. He's a proper linguist though so is showing up the rest of the group!

    @Anon: It is a small world! Please keep this to yourself though, I don't think it'd be very easy to continue doing this if others on the course are aware!

  • Jessica! Sut wyt ti, ers talwm?

    Wna i roi'r MP3au ar y we, dechrau heno. Bydd yn cymryd sbel, ac mae pethau eraill i'w neud (fel chwarae poker, wrth gwrs) felly dw i ddim yn addo bydd yr holl set yn ymddangos dros nos.

    I'll put the MP3s on the web, starting tonight. It'll take a while, and there's other things to do (like playing poker, of course) so I'm not promising that the whole set will appear overnight.
