Dweud wrth y byd / Tell the world

Dwi wedi postio am hwn o'r blaen, ond mae werth ei bostio eto
I've posted about this before, but it's worth mentioning again

Oce chi wedi/yn dysgu Cymraeg, nawr mae'n rhaid cael pobl i siarad Cymraeg gyda chi. Tydi siaradwyr Cymraeg ddim yn edrych dim gwahanol i neb arall felly mae Bwrdd yr Iaith Gymraeg yn darparu bathodynnau er mwyn i gwsmeriaid wybod pa staff mewn cwmniau/sefydliadau sy'n gallu siarad Cymraeg. Mae 2 bathodyn, un os chi'n rhugl, ac un os ydych eisiau dweud eich bod yn dysgu (a gobeithio na fydd pobl yn siarad rhy gyflym gyda chi!) Maen't am ddim felly e-bostiwch am un. Fy tip i yw gwisgo yr un sy'n dweud eich bod yn rhugl, neu bydd siaradwyr Cymraeg yn bod yn sili a throi i'r Saesneg mae'n siwr.

Ok you've learnt/are learning Welsh, now you need to get people to speak Welsh with you. Welsh speakers don't look any different to other people so the Welsh Language Board provide badges so that customers know which staff in companies/organisations can speak Welsh. There are 2 badges, one if you're fluent, ond one that say's you're learning (in the hope that people don't speak too fast) They're for free so e-mail for one. My tip is to wear the one that say's you're fluent, otherwise Welsh speakers will be silly and switch to English I'm sure.

Cwmni Mega’n cyflwyno


Mae yna gysgod ar Gymru, nid yw popeth yn union fel mae'n ymddangos. Mae rhywun, neu rywbeth wedi bod yn creu swynion cas. Mae ‘Hela'r Twrch Trwyth!’ yn seiliedig ar chwedl Culhwch ac Olwen - mae yma gewri, marchogion, cestyll, tywysoges hardd, anifeiliaid sy’n siarad, gwrach, swyn ac wrth gwrs helfa fawr a brwydr ffyrnig!

Mae Culhwch angen cymorth plant Cymru os am lwyddo, mae Olwen angen help i ddianc o’i charchar, a mae’r Twrch Trwyth . . . wel, mae e angen mynd ar ddeiet ar ôl bwyta gormod o dryffls!

I'r gad!

Cwmni Mega present


There's a dark cloud over Wales, everything is not as it seems. Someone or something has come and created an evil spell. ‘Hela'r Twrch Trwyth!’ is based on the myth of Culhwch ac Olwen - it's about giants, knights, castles, a beautiful princess, animals that talk, a witch, a spell and of course a big hunt and a fierce battle!

Culhwch needs the help of the children of Wales if he's to succeed, Olwen needs help to escape from her prison, and the ngen help i ddianc o’i charchar, and the Twrch Trwyth . . . well, he needs to go on a diet after eating too many truffles!

To battle!

Wel dyma lyfr cyntaf sydd wedi ei gyhoeddi gan Dalen, cwmni bach sydd wedi ei sefydlu er mwyn cyhoeddi cyfieithiadau Cymraeg o lyfrau Bandes Dessinées o'r cyfandir (llyfrau cartŵn i chi a fi). Dyma bost diddordol gan Rhodri am y pwnc.

A new book called 'Penbleth Dynol Ryw' is now available in Siop y Bont. What's so special about that I hear you ask? Well this is the first book to be published by Dalen, a small company set up to publish Welsh translations of Bandes Dessinées books (comic books to you and me) from the continent. Here's an interestin post by Rhodri about the subject.

My first day at (day) school

Dyma gyfweliad drwy e-bost gyda Gareth Williams a aeth i Ysgol Undydd wedi ei drefnu gan Coleg Gwent yn Nhŷ Brynglas, Casnewydd. Mae Gareth yn 22 oed ac yn dod o Gasnewydd.

Here'n an interview via e-mail with Gareth Williams who attended the Welsh day school arranged by Coleg Gwent at Brynglas House, Newport. Gareth is 22 years old an comes from Newport.

What time did the day start:
We started about 9:30AM and finished about 3:45PM. Lunch was included in the full price and there was an excellent bookshop present.

What level class did you go in:
Went in with Anne, beginners. Which was quite funny actually considering there was a good 25-30 people in one class! Apparently this is the highest number they've had in the Newport area.
Not sure how true that is. I like to take it as a good sign?

Where did your 'classmates' come from and what sort of people were they (age, occupation, were they more/less fluent than you)?
Most were from Croesyceiliog, Newport, Cwmbrân and Cardiff areas, one or two spoke with distinctive English accents (southern mostly), and one was from Ireland, who knew some Gaelic. Statistically, I was probably the youngest in the class, there was one other classmate who was in her early 20's. Most were middle aged, and one or two quite old. (In my class in Newport theres only one other classmate of mine in the same age group as me 20-25. She's from Wigan!), It wasn't really a turn off by any means, but it would have been "nice" to have one or two people in their early 20's. Some people were at my "level", and there were some light years ahead

What did you study?
Primarily we learned how to show "possession of things", such as;
"Mae car gyda fi" - "Oes cyfrifiadur gyda chi?" (i should hope so! :-p)
The numerous ways of saying Yes/No (Nac oes/oes, Ie/Nage, Ydi/Nac Ydi, Ydw/Nac dyw) were probably the hardest to get to grips with, at that time I had only really confronted "Ie/Nage", but had heard of Oes/Nac oes. But really had no idea in what respect you would say it. Funnily enough we covered the entire spectrum of Yes/No in my Welsh class today, Perhaps it would be beneficial to coincide Welsh day schools with Cwrs Mynediad?

Did you feel a bit out of depth - did tutors help you along?
Yeah they were very good, Even though I havent been learning that long (since mid September) I found my main obstacle was vocabulary. I often found myself able to understand the beginning and end of a sentence, but one integral word would throw me completely. This is down to me being so new at this, rather than a reflection on the teachers themselves.

What did you do for lunch, did you chat with people of other levels or where they to busy practising their Welsh?
A great many of Welsh learners I spoke to were very interested in Cwrs Mynediad. I had found out that I'm basically on the newest course, which came into effect this year. There were many questions, such as "what do you think of it?" and the like. Since the vast majority are on the other two courses "Wplan" and "Opec"?.

Was it more of the same in the afternoon or did you do something different?
For the most part yeah, we played a 'board game' for a long period of time in the afternoon, with a dice with "Nhw","Fi", "Chi" (Us, Me, You) etc.. and once rolled we had to talk about the people in the two pictures, using the whole "gyda" (with) thing.

How did you feel at the end?

Tired/Wedi Blino! But good, It's very important to hear Welsh, especially living in such an Anglicised part of Wales.

Would you go again?
After I've learned more vocabulary, definitely.

When's the next one?
In Newbridge on the 14th of January 2006

Diolch yn fawr Gareth.

Fel soniwyd uchod bydd yr ysgol undydd nesaf ar y 14eg o Ionawr yn Nhrecelyn. Fel y gwelwch mae'r ysgolion hyn yn hynod boblogaidd gyda 25+ ymhob lefel (allan o chwech lefel), felly rhaid archebu o flaen llaw.
Os hoffai unrhyun aral rannu eu profiadau o ddysgu Cymraeg yma, anfonwch e-bost ataf neu gadewch sylw.

As mentioned above, the next day school is at Newbridge on the 14th of January. As you can see these schools are very popular with 25+ on each level (out of 6 levels), so advance booking is essential.
If anyone else would like to share their experiences in learning Welsh here, please send me an e-mail or leave a comment.
