About this Episode

When I first moved to the UK, I had no idea that Welsh was a living language. Now it's 15 years later and I can speak it, watch TV in Welsh, and connect with thousands of learners around the world.

Welsh is considered a success story by many people who want to revive minority languages. 150 years ago, it was banned by the English speaking government and the English language became the norm.

Today, Welsh medium education is on the rise and the Welsh Assembly is promoting a target of getting a million people speaking the language.

In today's episode, I bring you interviews with Welsh learners and teachers, sharing their own passions for this ancient language.
