Ober/Exercises[edit]

Ex 1[edit]

Write out the Breton words, section by section.

Have 2 columns, clearly separated, and write Breton and English. Then cover up one column (eg. English) with paper and write the corresponding words on the paper. Then try it the other way round, cover up the Breton, and write out the words using the English as cues. This will be a little bit more difficult.

Repeat all this after an interval, the more you do it the easier you will remember the words.

Ex 2[edit]

Make up 10 sentences of your own using vocabulary you have learnt

Ex 3[edit]

Now , this will be a little more difficult

Take the adjectives listed above, and put them down on paper

Now, Each one has an opposite. Now re write the positives beside them

Cover up the original list, and write the list in English as before.
eg.
bihan - small
goullo - empty


And again cover up the Breton, but write the English Opposite.
Eg.
small- big
empty - full

Now, Cover up the first English column, and write the Breton for the 2nd English.

big - braz
full - leun

Cover up the English and write the opposites again.

braz - bihan
leun - goullo

Then back to the beginning again

bihan - small
goullo - empty

Carry on doing this until you can do it with ease.

Again, you will learn these verbs really quite quickly while doing this.


You can also do this the same for nouns and verbs

mamm - mum - dad - tad - mamm

You can include as many words as you want.

ar vaouez vihann - the small woman - the big man - an den braz - ar vaouez vihann

You can do practically anything with this.
