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 - by showing people across Europe how important languages are, and what fun can be had learning them.
26 September is the all important day and 2012 marks the Day's 11th anniversary following the decision of the Council of Europe to declare a European Day of Languages to be celebrated on 26 September each year
