Pan ddof draw i Batagonia, fe’th welaf 

Pan ddof draw i Batagonia fe’th welaf 

Pan ddof draw i dy dŷ, fe’th welaf 

Bydd hynny yn sbri 

When I come to Patagonia, I’ll see you 

When I come to Patagonia, I’ll see you 

When I come to your house, I’ll see you 

And that will be fun. 

Cuando vaya a Patagonia te veré 

Cuando vaya a Patagonia te veré 

Cuando vaya a tu casa, te veré 

Y me gusta rá. 

Objective: The learner will hold a conversation with someone in Patagonia using a complex phrase.

This song has three verses; one in each language but using the same melody.

Another song, 'One Day' can be learned in order to provide the other half of this conversation. It uses a different melody.

What you need to do:

Start by listening to the lyrics and practising the phrase 'Cuando Vaya a Patagonia.' When learners are confident, learn one language at a time, using the full version to sing along with and the instrumental version for when you want to test them!

Extension:

Ask learners to make lists of what else they might like to do when they visit Patagonia – use the Patagonia vocab section to make new sentences.

Learners can try and make the longest sentence they can by putting several phrases together.
