I love that my household is bilingual. But this week, the friendly tussle between the two languages in our household – English and Welsh – became more apparent and less friendly. I’ve recently been speaking more English than I previously had to our daughter, Ceris. Before, I would muddle through in my broken Welsh. Ceris’ English is now improving faster than her Welsh, and this scares and saddens Carlie. As a first-language Welsh speaker, Carlie worries the that the ubiquitous and unrelenting steamroller that is the English language, will squeeze out her small but plucky native tongue. And unfortunately, it probably will.
