Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood has made a major policy speech on the teaching of Welsh and other languages. She says her party will draw up a plan to not only increase the number of places in Welsh medium schools but also ensure an element of teaching through the Welsh language in English medium primary schools. It would be implemented by 2024, which she said would be at the end of a Plaid Cymru government's second term.
A year later -in 2025- Ms Wood wants at least a third of all secondary schools to be teaching their core subjects through a foreign language. She argues that all children should become at least trilingual, speaking Welsh, English and another language. The Plaid leader cited the example of Luxembourg, where children are successively taught in Letzeburgesch, French and German.
