Carmarthenshire Council’s annual Welsh Language report for 2017/18 can now be seen on the authority’s website.
The report focuses on the second year of the implementation of the Welsh Language Standards.
It includes information about work that has been carried out not only to ensure compliance with the Standards but also to promote the Welsh language in the county.
Highlighted in the report is the work the council, in partnership with the County Strategic Forum, has done to produce learning resources, including a leaflet explaining the benefits of ‘Being bilingual’ and a ‘Welsh with your kids – Give it a go!‘ leaflet to help parents with simple sentences.
A number of council staff have been on Welsh language courses, and others are showing interest.
Cllr Peter Hughes Griffiths, executive board member for the development of the Welsh language, said: “This report provides a positive overview of our work in relation to the Welsh Language Standards and the promotion of the language. We do recognise that more can be done and our priorities for 2018/19 are available to view on our website.”
