2018 European Day of Languages

Wednesday 26 September 2018 13:30-16:30

Come and celebrate the diversity of languages in Europe with tasters of French, German, Italian, Spanish and Polish and more…

Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states are encouraged to learn more languages, at any age, in and out of school. Being convinced that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent, the Council of Europe promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.

Join us at the Institut français d’Écosse to celebrate the diversity of languages in Europe with tasters in various European languages.
