Where is Wales?
Wales is a country within the United Kingdom, in Western Europe. It’s the western part of mainland Britain which juts out from the rest of the island and has a population of about 3 million people. Two thirds of these people live in the south west part of Wales, meaning that many of the central areas are sparsely populated.

Foreign language schools in Wales are more likely to be located in the bigger cities, but language travel students are encouraged to take time out from the cities and look around the rest of the country as there’s some unique and beautiful places to see in Wales. Cardiff is the capital and largest city of Wales, and is the most popular destination in the country. Culture, sports, history and shopping are the big attractions here!
Other popular cities include Bangor, Swansea, Aberystwyth, Llandudno and Caernarfon. There are three national parks in Wales – Brecon Beacons in Mid Wales, Pembrokeshire Coast in South Wales and Snowdonia in North Wales.

Wales is the Land of Song!
Wales has built a reputation around the world for producing great singers, as well as many of today’s popular British actors and actresses.
