Thinking of moving to Wales or already have? You’ll soon start getting used to living in our bilingual nation.

You’ll quickly realise that the Welsh language has a presence in everyday life and can be seen and heard in all kinds of places — from road signs to doctors’ surgeries, from schools to sports.

The last census showed that nearly one in five of us are able to speak Welsh, that’s 562,000 people, with the highest percentages recorded in North West and West Wales.
