Another Wenglish entry as dwi'n dysgu Cymraeg [I'm learning Welsh]

Dylwn ni defynddio ein Cymraeg ni yn gyntaf wrth dechrau sgwrs achos ar Ddydd Iau mae hi'n ddiwrnod 'Cymraeg yn Gyntaf'.
[We should be using our Welsh first when starting a conversation because Thursday is called 'Welsh First'.]

And to mark the event Radio Cymru's Dylan a Meinir show will be broadcasting live from the Pantri Café in Denbigh from 3pm along with the community bus, Hysbys.

The event is part of the Welsh Language Board campaign - Welsh Give it a Go!

Yn wreddiol ron i'n poeni am ddefynddio Cymraeg tu allan i fy nosbarth [Originally I was worried about using my Welsh outside my class] in case I looked silly - but I've got over that - and in any case I've never been ridiculed for giving it a go.

Dylech chi trio! [You should try!] Or maybe you have.

Ffindes i hawsa ers dwi'n wedi dechrau i defynddio fy Nghymraeg ar strydoedd Yr Wyddgrug.
[I have found it easier since I started to use my Welsh on the streets of Mold.]

I've even had a couple of rhugl [fluent] conversations in Welsh off the cuff. That was great fun.

How lucky to be able to live in the same country where you can practice the language your learning every day.
