About: In some parts of Wales, the majority language is still Welsh. In Gwynedd, the language of instruction in all schools in Welsh. Children moving from other parts of the world who don’t speak Welsh, like non-English speakers coming to Australia, must spend a term in a language-cramming unit before being allowed into mainstream school. This documentary follows several of these children for a year.
