The brythonic celts were the original Brits. Its outrageous that the globalists have erased this part of our heritage, but then it follows on from decades of Welsh/British ethnic genocide (even allowing a welsh speaking village (Celyn) to flood to serve the water requirements of Merseyside.

UK has the poorest modern foreign language record on the planet, outside of Wales, only English is used in the UK. There are parts of Wales, where you will find monolingual English speakers even though their heritage is Welsh. Welsh is dying as a language.

Welsh culture is a vital part of our Brexit identity.

Why? It would be a complete waste of time, and the way languages are taught in school is generally abysmal.

French and German are a waste of time. Why not Polish or Punjabi?

*as well. It's two words. Not one. Get English straight before you start telling us we should be learning other languages. Remember, two words - "as well".

There is no need to the Welsh language outside Wales. As a modern language, it's spoken by a very small number of people, and as a classical language, it has almost no literature composed in it, other than the Red Book of Hergest and a couple of other things.

Even though the likelihood is that you are probably an Iberian-Brythonic celt yourself, unless you have a bit of Saxon/Viking mixed in.

Keep our heritage alive man.

My ancestry is Norman going back to at least the seventh century, with some Jewish and Scots mixed in in the last century or two.

Why would the UK learn a language that barely anyone speaks and provides little, if any, benefit to us?
(Original post by Studentikovich)

Because French and German are two of the most spoken languages in the world. Are you really that dense to not realise the difference in benefit between learning French or German to Polish? And there would be less inclination to speak Punjabi because, shockingly, this is the West, there is little reason to speak Punjabi.

I would say given the number of Poles and Punjabis here and the growing influence of eastern economies (Belt and Road etc) all western european languages are sliding in to irrelevance.

Both of those examples are the largest demographics in the UK. Theres loads of Polish speakers in the US aswell. French is highly irrelevant in an Asiatic/Eastern dominated age. Plus we need to revive our indigenous languages to keep our bloodline/heritage alive.

40 million people speak Polish, in the world. 275 million people speak French, 200 million speak German.

Not only does that show the foolishness of making it a main MFL for schools, but also, most eastern european economies have have different languages, learning Polish would have little difference.

Furthermore, Poles and Punjabis coming to the UK are expected to learn English, not the other way around.

Western European languages aren't sliding into irrelevance, I'm not sure where you got that load of tosh. Western countries are expanding at a massive rate, English is still the most spoken language in the world, Im not sure how that's sliding into irrelevance. Spanish is increasing rapidly also, which is a Western European language.

Stop chatting crap please.
