You Speakin' The Crazy Language

by Thong Nguyen
(Chofu-shi, Tokyo, Japan)

The Welsh language is a slowly dying language. During the mid-19th century, about 80% of the population were able to speak Welsh. However, by 2001 only 20.8% of the population were able to speak the language. Now, despite the government's attempts to increase the number of Welsh speakers, that percentage has dropped to 19%.

It might be many more decades before the Welsh language is no more, but it's still a bit sad to see the national language of a country slowly getting phased out by the English language. I hope that one day the Welsh language doesn't become one of the many forgotten languages.
