Re: New Learning Path

You can still access the old tree here: https://www-internal.duolingo.com/ It's better than nothing, but one has to do a bit of guesswork when applying the grammar to the "official" course. It would be a tolerable situation even if all Duolingo did was to make an announcement that the not...

Re: New Learning Path

Yes, and they are really helpful. The problem is that the units have changed in the revised tree, and don't match the original notes. The information in them is good, but it's a bit like trying to put together two jigsaw puzzles which have been mixed together, using the picture from a third puzzle a...

Re: New Learning Path

But didn’t you lose all your progress by resetting? Yes. I'm not interested in keeping score - although I know that this is a huge encouragement for many learners - just in learning the language. I reset my tree because I wanted to start again from the beginning to consolidate my knowledge. The pro...

Re: New Learning Path

I reset my learning path and got it. The course notes are not available (at least they aren't to me), which has made it useless for me. Other than that, I think the learning path is fine.

Re: What has happened to the course notes?

Ah. It seems that this wasn't communicated very well in the Welsh course. The "guidebook" option has simply disappeared. I can't help but feel that this was badly done: it would have been a better user experience either for the Welsh course to remain on the old path, or a "guidebook c...

Re: What has happened to the course notes?

I'm using the web version, and that guidebook option is definitely not there, but thanks for clarifying this for me. At least I know I'm not going daft!

Re: What has happened to the course notes?

I reset my Welsh tree and got the new one-path course, but I don't see any option for viewing the tips at all. I'm on Unit 6 now, and haven't seen a single button to press anywhere to show me the grammar for the unit. Thanks for the Duome link - this is very helpful, but I don't know what - if anyth...

What has happened to the course notes?

I've just reset my Welsh tree in order to do a full language review before polishing off the last few modules. I have noticed that there is now no option to review course notes for each individual unit on the web version. I'm just presented with the test questions, with no notes option. Is this the ...

Re: New voices!

Ok, I spent more time than usual on today's practice, and the male voice is starting to grow on me. The female voice was clear from the outset. Both voices are a definite improvement on the artificial voice, and it is good to hear proper pronunciation. Thanks to this I have already corrected one of ...

Re: New voices!

I hate to say it, but I find the new male voice almost impossible to hear. I suppose it is a matter of retuning my ear to pick up the nuances of a new voice, but today's practice session was challenging.

Re: Dialects

I find the dialects helpful and they don't give me a real problem, but I think it would be useful if it were indicated more clearly. So, for example, learning cacen and teisen in the same lesson, but being advised that the former is more common in the South and the latter in the North. I don't know ...

Re: Nos and Noswaith

Ok ,so a chance phone call with another Welsh friend this evening has clarified things a bit. He is from Pembroke, so his opinion might not be applicable to the whole of Wales. (Not specifically because he is from Pembroke!) He has only ever known noswaith to be used in the phrase noswaith dda . Whi...

Diolch yn fawr!

I have a couple of excellent Welsh colleagues who have been immensely helpful and supportive of my journey. Unfortunately they are currently on holiday to the other side of the world. Unfortunately for me, that is. :lol:

Re: Nos and Noswaith

Thank you, that is a really comprehensive and useful answer!

So is there a way of explicitly specifying, for example, "last Tuesday evening" as opposed to "last Tuesday night", or would it be something deduced from context?

Re: Nos and Noswaith

Ooookay, so "noswaith dda" is translated as a unit, rather than being composed of smaller units which may be employed elsewhere? That would make sense, and there are plenty of other similar examples. I haven't seen any of my Welsh friends yet to ask them, but I hope to get a definitive ans...

Information from ibisc re course update

From the old Welsh forum, posted on 17th March 2022: The free pdf files of the current course books mentioned by rmcode are here - https://dysgucymraeg.cymru/dysgu/cwricwlwm-a-chwrslyfrau/ Printed copies are available for, I think, £10 each - but check that you are ordering the very latest versions....

Nos and Noswaith

Something that has come up since the update. The sentence "I had a good salad for supper last Tuesday evening" ...can be correctly translated as "Ces i salad da i swper nos Fawrth diwetha" ...but "Ces i salad da i swper noswaith Fawrth diwetha" is marked as incorrect. A...

Latest Welsh course update

Hello, new forum, and new forum friends. I noticed that the Welsh course had an update a few days ago. I've just started going through to refresh all of my skills - I see lots of blue dots, and there are several skills which have been completely reset. I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts abou...
