    Wales is a small nation with a long and varied tradition of bilingualism. The minority language and culture is under threat. The book seeks to take the temperature of the Welsh language. Building on a computer analysis of the Welsh language Census data, the book provides evidence of a language moving slowly towards extinction.   We all know that children who start school in a new language at a very young age (pre-school to school age) are generally very successful and seem to acquire the school language quickly. Older children, however, these “late bilinguals” are children who switch schools to a new language after about years of age.

    By following these, teachers can help these children reach their educational potential and play a positive part in school life, the community and society as a whole. The potential among EAL learners for bilingualism is particularly important, as it increases mental ability such as problem-solving, creativity, and memorisation. Unlike children in, say, Germany, children learning Welsh in Wales do not learn the language and culture of a foreign country. Compared with bilingual education in other countries, the Welsh system is better developed concerning teaching materials, but there is still lack of teachers.
