Benefits of learning bilingually
Learning bilingually or through Welsh not only enhances a person's language skills but will also foster a sense of cultural pride and diversity. It shows a commitment to preserving the Welsh language and heritage, as well as contributing to the government's goal of achieving one million speakers by 2050. Promoting Cymraeg 2050 through bilingual learning in Welsh therefore not only benefits individuals in terms of their qualifications, but also contributes positively to the wider cultural and linguistic landscape of Wales. In terms of qualifications, being bilingual can open up opportunities for employment in Wales where knowledge of the language is highly valued, as well as demonstrating a strong dedication to linguistic and cultural diversity. Furthermore, the ability to communicate in Welsh can also foster stronger relationships within the community and create a sense of belonging and pride in one's heritage.
Manteision dysgu'n ddwyieithog
Mae dysgu'n ddwyieithog neu drwy'r Gymraeg nid yn unig yn gwella sgiliau iaith unigolyn ond bydd hefyd yn meithrin ymdeimlad o falchder ac amrywiaeth diwylliannol. Mae'n dangos ymrwymiad i warchod yr iaith a'r dreftadaeth Gymraeg, yn ogystal â chyfrannu at nod y llywodraeth o sicrhau miliwn o siaradwyr erbyn 2050. Felly mae hyrwyddo Cymraeg 2050 trwy ddysgu dwyieithog yn y Gymraeg nid yn unig o fudd i unigolion o ran eu cymwysterau, ond hefyd yn cyfrannu'n gadarnhaol at dirwedd ddiwylliannol ac ieithyddol ehangach Cymru. O ran cymwysterau, gall bod yn ddwyieithog agor cyfleoedd ar gyfer cyflogaeth yng Nghymru lle mae gwybodaeth o'r iaith yn cael ei gwerthfawrogi'n fawr, yn ogystal â dangos ymroddiad cryf i amrywiaeth ieithyddol a diwylliannol. Ar ben hynny, gall y gallu i gyfathrebu yn y Gymraeg hefyd feithrin perthnasoedd cryfach o fewn y gymuned a chreu ymdeimlad o berthyn a balchder yn nhreftadaeth rhywun.
