Cymraeg (Welsh), is certainly on the rise in our particular
part of Wales. Llŷn and the surrounding areas of Snowdonia (Eryri)
and Anglesey (Ynys Môn) have the highest percentage of Welsh
speakers in Wales (Cymru), widely over 70%, ten times the
percentage in the country's capital, Cardiff (Caerdydd).
Cymraeg is now the official first language, and all public
signs/notices have to be bilingual, most noticeable are
probably the road signs. It is not hard to come across
people speaking Cymraeg, and don't worry, they are not
talking about you, it is simply the language they use
everyday, and why not? Cymraeg is one of the oldest
languages in Europe, older than English and often referred
to as "the language of heaven".
