Despite the dominance of English in Wales, the Welsh language is very much alive. It is used in conversations every day, in public bodies, in official documents, on road signs, and, increasingly, is required in primary school education. Around half a million people speak Welsh fluently in Wales today, while many more have some knowledge of the language. The phrasebook includes situations that one is likely to encounter in Wales, and the 6,000-word, two-way dictionary gives essential vocabulary words for basic comprehension. The grammar section enables users to form simple sentences, while a commonsense pronunciation guide provides a glimpse of the complex phonetic structure of Welsh. Information about Welsh culture and life complete the work.
