If your partner does not speak Welsh , I’m sure you’ve asked the question before your baby is born : “Do we want our children to speak Welsh? “This is a very important question you ask yourself and your partner. It is important that you discuss this and consider the views both of you . If you wish to raise your children bilingually it is important that you both see and understand the benefits of doing this.
