Happy to Teach: Look I have put up several posts telling people that I am willing to help. But no one has written me. So If you want to learn, send me an E-mail saying your name, address, how much welsh you know, why you want to learn and put the subject as welsh lessons to my new address at davidjohn88@gmail.com

Dddiolch,

Dai

I agree with you Dai, there are a lot of people asking for help but no one follows up on it. I guess it depends on how serious they want to learn. A lot of people here on phrasebase are trying to learn various languages at once, so their priorities might be different. Welsh might be at the bottom of their list.

Be patient, I'm sure if they are truly serious about learning, they will contact you.

In fact, I hosted an Irish lesson yesterday and only 2 people came of the 5 that RSVPed and said they would come. Of course, things happen and there are always going to be no shows. It all depends on how serious you are about learning. For me, I am very serious. Unfortunately, I am not interested in learning Welsh, but I study Irish everyday in my free time.

Ádh mór! Good luck!

Slán,
Christine

Lots of people may want to learn - but most people are very unwilling to give their full personal details - (something I don't do and my kids are forbidden from doing, as you do not know who you are giving this info to)So you may find this is putting people off from taking up your offer

I agree with you also Maz, that information isn't really necessary to learn. You don't need their email, name or address, but a screen name so that you can maybe chat with them or do voice chat on an instant messenger would be helpful.

Of course, you can avoid having to give any information all together and just PM the person right here on phrasebase and have your lessons in the phrasebase chatroom like many people choose to do. The admins are currently working on improving chatroom, but I host lessons in there all the time and I never ask for personal information. It works fine for me and my students.

A microphone is also helpful in the phrasebase chatroom, but not necessary. I find it useful to have a microphone to give lessons, so they can hear my pronunciation and I also use a webcam to show them which books I am using. Of course, those are both optional.

Good luck with the Welsh! (Sorry I can't help with Welsh, I am not currently learning this language)

I agree. Giving out info like that is a little disconcerning.

I think by address he means email address (because when referring to his own email address he simply called it his address). If you're already going to email him, I'm sure it's not a problem if he knows your email address. And no one said you had to give your full name, or even your real name.

I would like to learn Welsh. But I'll send you a message on here as it's more convenient, as others have mentioned. Hope that's okay.

It's kinda cool to learn a language from more than JUST a book, trust me on that. Oh gods do I HATE book-only language study. >.<

/me hides Elvish study guides under Welsh grammer books

hi- I'm going to be attending an intensive cwrs in bangor Oct-Dec...I'd love to try to correspond with you in Welsh after that, if you're still willing to teach. I think it would help to have someone correct my horrendous mistakes. I am a beginner...I can say what I like, and how was the film, and that I have a black cat. stuff like that. makes for rather boring correspondence...but hopefully by Dec. it will improve...

Still Happy to teach. Will try again then.:
Ok, well i did run a course which i just finished, and wasnt too successful as no one seemed to do any of the follow up work. I am going to start again.
This time i'll make myself clear and will explain myself. Okies. The reason i ask for your Name and Address is to give it a personal touch.

The Address refers to your Email, Country and Province if its relevant. This is so I know any flexes I must make in the lesson to intergrate it into your language.

Ok. If you Send me an Email With the title
Want to learn Welsh (cause a lot of your messages I dont seem to recieve cause of my stupid junk mail settings) then I will help you as much as I can.

I use E-mail as I am currently a Medical Student and due to resources and restrictions on the Uni network (Or just my crappy laptop), I can't always get on PB, but I can always reply to my emails. So thats the Long and Short of it.

Sorry for being so unclear before, and sorry if I haven't replied to any emails you may have sent to me. I can't believe that cause so much controversy! Lol.

Oh and don't worry Maz. For your reassurance if you really dont want to divulge any information you dont want to, its the internet, you don't have to. All divulging of any information is on a voluntary basis only. Still happy to teach.

Hope this clears it all up,
Cheers Guys

Dai

Just learning: Helo, rydyn dysgu cymraeg. Just began learning not long ago. My problem is that I only have access to the internet at work and only once a week off work. So I started with Mark Nodine's welsh course, and now am using the BBC catchphrase. However because I can only download about once a week the sound files that are only availabe in RAM/RM format I cant seem to download. It is very annoying. I will try to post anything else I find that may be of help.

I have just started Welsh today so I wouldn't obviously be able to help you but I did find this excellent website for beginners :-)

I really recommend it: http://www.menai.ac.uk/clicclic/
