Welsh and English.

I was brought up in a bilingual family. My Taid is fluent welsh and even though my Dad is fluent welsh, we all spoke English at home and to this day I have no idea why! But I always speak Welsh to my Taid. Ever since I fell pregnant with Mia I knew I wanted her first language to be Welsh but also knew that I wanted her to understand and speak English too as I knew more people speak English than Welsh these days. Since I moved to the village I'm at now everybody speaks Welsh and their school is fluent welsh too which I am glad! I don't know why but I feel like its quite important for my girls to speak and understand both languages but mainly welsh. Maybe because I am welsh? I do think the welsh language should be spoke more around Wales as I know so many people who live in Wales and don't understand Welsh.
From day one, I always spoke welsh to both Mia and Elliw and since I have moved to where I am now for the past 3 years I speak Welsh daily to other people and my partner.
 
Do you speak any other language in your household?
