$2m for Welsh Language Centers




The Welsh government is taking action to curb the disappearance of the Welsh language. According to the 2011 census, only 19% of Welsh people can speak the language, down from 21% in 2001, revealing a decline in the number of Welsh speakers throughout the country. The government aims to bolster Welch language learning with £1.25 million ($2 million), which will go towards language education. This investment is destined to colleges, universities, and other institutions that will develop or expand language centers and promote the Welsh language maintenance and acquisition.
