There's apparently an area in Argentina where Welsh is spoken regularly. And in Wales itself you typically have to go to the north to find the Welsh speaking areas. At least from everything I've read. I have no first hand knowledge on the subject, I'm just an American with a Welsh last name who thought it would be fun to learn the language of my ancestors. As for if it's "worth" it, I will have very little use of the language unless I'm ever able to travel to North Wales (which I would LOVE to do someday) and mingle with the natives. In any case, I find the exercise of learning a new language fun, so even if I don't get much chance to use it with native speakers I won't look at it as wasted time.

Welsh is spoken widely in both South and North although the larger cities in the South are probably not the best places. You would be better off going to the valleys.

Of course there are welsh people in other countries as well. However, they are too hard to find. So yeah, if you want to speak Welsh, you have to go Wales and talk with them. I think Welsh is worth to learn, I also want to learn it. I mean, you would know a language that everyone doesn't know, and it would be a cool thing since it makes you a speacial person.

For example, I'm now still developing my Norwegian and there are only 5 million people in Norway. And also more than %90 of them can speak English very well. However, if you speak to a person in his/her second language it would go his/her head, but if you speak in their native it would go their heart.

Learning language is nothing about being useful or not, it's all about having fun from it. There are only 300.000 people in Iceland, however a lot of people (like me) want to learn Icelandic. Training your brain is really a useful thing, you can sure. And there are a lot of learners of Latin but Latin is a dead language, I'm also learning it.¨

Every language has their own benefits to learners.

There is also a diaspora in mainly former British colonies. There are Welsh societies in a number of countries. London and some other English cities have thriving Welsh speaking populations with Welsh churches/chapels and in the case of London even a Welsh language school.

There are also many parts of the World influenced by Welsh settlers and missionaries. Also as the most widely spoken Celtic language there are many universities which study it as part of their linguistics departments.

You can watch Welsh language TV and listen to much Welsh language music on Spotify and Apple music for example.

There are over 500,000 in Wales, maybe 100-200,000 in England, Wales is officially bilingual so all official signs are in Welsh and English.

What country do you live in?

One of the people who I teach Welsh to is from Poland and she finds the language easier to pronounce than many English people.

You can also study Welsh in Poland:- http://www.go-poland.pl/adam-mickiewicz-university-pozna-22
