The European Day of Languages
Get ready for a celebration of languages on the 26th of September! The European Day of Languages was first celebrated in 2001 at the end of the European Year of Languages. It aims to promote language learning and plurilingualism in Europe, and to foster intercultural understanding by emphasizing the wealth and beauty of European cultural and linguistic diversity. When one thinks of Europe, the languages that immediately come to mind are those few spoken by the majority of the population such as Russian, German, Spanish, French and Italian, but there are actually up to 225 indigenous languages in Europe, which accounts for up to 3% of the world’s total. According to the official EDL website, at least half of the world population is bilingual or pluringual, which means that they speak two or more languages. So why not join this growing segment of the population? I have added below a few resources that hopefully will get you inspired!
