Benefits of bilingualism

I see the benefits but don’t speak Welsh and I’m concerned that I won’t know what’s going on in a Welsh speaking environment.

The vast majority of parents who send their children to Welsh medium schools don’t speak Welsh themselves. This is why Welsh medium schools communicate with parents in both Welsh and English. The classroom environment is Welsh ( apart form the English lessons of course)  But whenever parents, carers and friends visit the school, bilingualism is the norm. This means teachers and pupils will speak Welsh or English depending on who is in the conversation.
