Number of Welsh speakers falling

5 posts in this topic

The number of people who speak Welsh has fallen in the past 10 years, according to the 2011 census.

Figures also suggest Welsh is now a minority language in two heartlands, Carmarthenshire and Ceredigion.

It has been thought that migration trends and education might lead to an increase in speakers in less traditional Welsh-speaking areas.

But the census suggests otherwise, with just two areas, Monmouthshire and Cardiff, seeing a percentage increase.

Only in Gwynedd and Anglesey do over half the population now speak Welsh.

I can't see what the problem is.

Welsh is a pointless language. As Karl Pilkington once said about the Welsh and their language: "They don't need that language. What's wrong with them? They aren't a tribe."

Why?

Polls show that even the WELSH don't want to speak it.

If you want to get ahead in this world it is English you should be speaking, not Welsh.
