Bore da, ffrindiau! Mis yma roeddwn i eisiau ysgrifennu rhywbeth yn Gymraeg, ond doeddwn i ddim yn gwybod… beth. Felly meddyliais, efallai byddai rhywfath o ddiweddariad yn syniad da. Dw i ddim yn gwybod, os mae unrhyw un o hyn gwneud synnwyr, ond bydd hi’n ddiddorol gweld sut dw i'n gwella dros amser, gan ddefnyddio … Continue reading Diweddariad byr
Adventures in Welsh
P'nawn da, ffrindiau! Sut dach chi? Dw i'n dda iawn, diolch yn fawr! To be honest with you, I wasn't entirely sure what I was going to write about this month. I know I've got a bit of a reputation as a serial dabbler, and I can't deny that I've definitely earned it in the … Continue reading Adventures in Welsh
New year, same old me
Listen. I’m still processing 2017, and I think it’s deeply unfair of you to make me embark upon yet another year I’m not ready for with so little warning. I hear what some of you are screaming at your screens, it allegedly happens like this every twelve months. To those vocal few I say this: … Continue reading New year, same old me
Dach chi’n prynu pannas, Mrs Jones?
Bore da, ffrindiau! Sut dach chi? Y Bioden Ieithoedd dw i. Dw i’n dysgu Cymraeg. And if you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll probably know that I’ve been dysgu-ing Cymraeg for quite some time, with embarrassingly little to show for it. My voracious dabbling is well documented on this blog, and although … Continue reading Dach chi’n prynu pannas, Mrs Jones?
For the love of words, revisited
It's been a while since I've done one of these posts. As anyone who has been following this blog or my socials for any length of time will know, I'm a bit of a dabbler when it comes to language learning. That's why my blog is called the language magpie, I flit between shiny objects … Continue reading For the love of words, revisited

Taking the month off – a short update
So since I spoiled you all (read: really tuckered out the ol' brain box) by writing two posts last month, I'm taking this month off, so this is just going to be a quick little language-learning update. It's been quite a busy month as it happens - I took a trip into Northumberland to my … Continue reading Taking the month off – a short update
A short update
So, cards on the table here... this isn't the post I'd had planned for this month, but it seemed kind of in bad taste to post that, given everything that's going on in the world. So I've relegated that until next month, and instead, I wanted to share a little impromptu check-in about my language-learning … Continue reading A short update
Latgalian, a journey into the unknown
Well! It feels like I've been teasing this post for a while, so it feels strange to actually sit down and write it. As many of you who are regular readers of my blog, I mentioned (somewhat obliquely) towards the end of last year that I had been taking language classes online - but I … Continue reading Latgalian, a journey into the unknown
Another slice of Polyglot NaNoWriMo
I'm no stranger to putting a little too much on my plate, and I'm not just talking about at Lao's Chinese buffet. Mainly because it closed down during the pandemic. Last year, when the time came to do Polyglot NaNoWriMo, it coincided with me moving into my new flat, so I was fighting to find … Continue reading Another slice of Polyglot NaNoWriMo
