On the 26th of September, we celebrate the European Day of Languages. Every year, millions of people in the Council’s member states and elsewhere organise or take part in activities to promote linguistic diversity.
On this day, we talk about the advantages of knowing more than one language. We discussed how it helps us to develop plurilingual skills and reinforce intercultural understanding. It also allows us to get to know and to embrace other cultures and points of view.
The Middle School students were actively engaged in discussions about “Why and how we learn a new language”, and also had fun participating in the House Language Competition, which was won by the red team: the Bears! Congratulations!
