    Jonathan Morris, Charlotte Brookfield, Maria Jose Rodriguez Pinzon, Barbara Holt, Elin Arfon

    Chapter from the book: Bowell, T et al. 2024. Revitalising Higher Education: Insights from Te Puna Aurei LearnFest 2022.


    The rise of online learning in recent years has led to an increase in the number of people learning Welsh as adults, particularly outside of Wales, and more diversity in the way in which the language is learned. Drawing on a quantitative questionnaire completed by 746 Welsh learners, 47.5% of whom lived outside of Wales, this chapter examines the motivations of Welsh learners and the extent to which such motivations are influenced by social factors.
