Even though the Rhondda people are very proud to be Welsh, most speak English only. There is a rising number of bilinguals (welsh and english speakers) due to the rising popularity of Welsh medium schools as more and more choose to send their children to these schools.
If you visit any part of Wales during the 6 Nation Rugby championships (great time to visit), you may find it useful to have the national anthem, which is sung in Welsh (see photo of Charlotte Church, Katherine Jenkins, leading the crowd singing anthem at Wales/Ireland RBS6 nation match 2005) This anthem, I think, is very emotive - anthem lyrics and translation in next tip.
