As a bilingual nation it is vital that Cymraeg is heard and used across the country. There are hundreds of simple ‘little things’ that everyone – regardless of their level of Cymraeg – can do to raise the daily use of Cymraeg.

There are many opportunities to use Cymraeg which people need to make more of every day. By sharing and promoting #Pethau Bychain we can all inspire others to do likewise. Through supporting each other we can help make Wales a more bi-lingual nation.

To inspire you, here are some examples of the #PethauBychain you can encourage your communities and audiences to do.



  • Write a food shopping list in Welsh
  • Choose the Cymraeg option when withdrawing money from the bank
  • Give your pet a Welsh name


  • How about singing a Welsh song with your child?
  • Learning to drive? How about putting Welsh learner plates on the car?
  • Wear a Cymraeg badge to show customers that a bilingual service is available
