New Welsh language project for members of ethnic minorities
- Wednesday, 04 July 2012
A new project has been launched to encourage members of the ethnic minorities in Cardiff and the Vale of Glamorgan to learn Welsh.
The Welsh language is one of the oldest languages in Europe as well as the world. Like many minority languages, it has had an interesting history. Today, however, it is one of the most vibrant minority languages in the world. Welsh is seen on sign posts, taught in schools, used in the workplace and, most importantly, spoken in the community.
The Welsh for Adults Centre has been a centre of excellence for Welsh language teaching
for over 30 years, bringing thousands of people to fluency.
Many people from different nationalities have seen the value of learning Welsh too. They
have embraced the Welsh language and use it at home, with friends and in their businesses.
Ethnic minorities make up 11% of the total population of Cardiff and a considerable number from ethnic groups are already speaking Welsh.
This scholarship will give you the opportunity to start learning Welsh and to begin using the language in your daily life.
The Welsh for Adults Centre looks forward to awarding these scholarships to 10 individuals.
