Welsh Language Support
Begin the bilingual journey With over 65,000 children in Welsh-medium or bilingual primary schools in Wales, why do parents consider the Welsh language important for their children?
By choosing Welsh-medium education, you’ll be giving your child an additional life skill — the ability to communicate in two languages, both spoken and written.
Rhag is an association which represents parents throughout Wales. The group includes both Welsh speakers and non-Welsh speakers; living in towns or rural areas. Rhag believes that bilingualism is one of the greatest gifts one can give a child, and that the ability to speak Welsh will help children develop confidence in themselves and in their culture.

Twf Cymru provides advice and support for any family in Wales who wishes to raise their children bilingually.
Twf Cymru advise to start as soon as possible after the child is born. You can do a lot to help your child's language development at home, and if you've got family members, or friends who see your children regularly, who also speak Welsh, make sure you encourage them to use Welsh with your children all the time.
