To highlight European Day of Languages on Wedensday 26th September we are having our first annual “Language Week”

Parents, Guardians and friends are invited to come into class and teach the children a poem, a song, a rhyme or a phrase in their native tongue. It is a great opportunity for our pupils to be exposed to the different languages and cultures in a fun and exciting way.

Please fill in the form below if you are free to come into your child’s class.

What is the European Day of Languages?

The European Year of Languages 2001, jointly organised by the Council of Europe and the European Union, was successful in involving millions of people across 45 participating countries. Its activities celebrated linguistic diversity in Europe and promoted language learning.

Following the success of the Year the Council of Europe declared a European Day of Languages to be celebrated on 26th of September each year. The general objectives of the European Day of Languages are:

  1. Alerting the public to the importance of language learning and diversifying the range of languages learnt in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding;
  2. Promoting the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe, which must be preserved and fostered;
  3. Encouraging lifelong language learning in and out of school, whether for study purposes, for professional needs, for purposes of mobility or for pleasure and exchanges.

26 September 2011 marked the 10th anniversary of the European Day of Languages (EDL) celebrated at the Council of Europe and throughout its 47 member states.
