26th September: European Day of Languages

 

In 2001 the Council of Europe decided to celebrate a European Day of Languages on 26th September each year. 

Did you know that there are between 6000 and 7000 languages in the world with about 225 indigenous languages in Europe? Most of the world’s languages are spoken in Asia and Africa and at least half of the world’s population are bilingual or plurilingual, i.e. they speak or understand two or more languages. 

Behind each and every one of them lies a rich and diverse culture. That’s what the European Day of Languages (EDL) aims to celebrate - by showing people across Europe how important languages are, andwhat fun can be had learning them.

If you are interested, here you can find different links on the EDL:
