The Welsh Language

 
The Church was for the gentry and the Chapel for the people. However hard English legislation sought to stamp out the language as long as the Chapel spoke Welsh the language survived. 
Welsh is very much a living language. For instance in our village all lessons in the school are given in Welsh and its common to meet pre-school (or a better term would be pre-television age!) children with no English and even older people who find it difficult to find the exact English word they wish to use. Though of course just about everyone is bilingual.
