The Welsh language, also known as "Cymraeg," is an important part of the cultural and educational landscape in Wales. Many schools teach both English and Welsh and are used as languages of instruction. Students taught in both languages, with Welsh language education being a key component of the curriculum will gain bilingualism and an appreciation for the Welsh language and culture. Welsh language proficiency examinations, include Welsh GCSE and A-level examinations. These qualifications are important for further education and employment in Wales. The Welsh government has set goals to increase the number of Welsh speakers, and this includes promoting the use of Welsh in schools and ensuring that more students become fluent in the language and to preserve and promote Welsh heritage and culture.
