What is the European Day of Languages?

There are over 6000 languages spoken in the world.  And 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 - showing people across Europe how important languages are and what fun can be had learning them.

26 September is the all important day, set up by the Council of Europe, it was first celebrated in 2001 - and it's getting bigger every year, now with 45 countries involved. 

How can I get involved?

Well, any number of ways, really.  We've plenty of ideas and resources to help you on your way.  But how you celebrate the European Day of Languages is really up to you.  It's just about finding a way to get people (in schools, colleges and the wider community) excited about languages.  That might be through competitions, events, parties, food markets, plays, dancing...the list is endless.
