Statement by Leonard Orban on the European Day of Languages

6 views

As the EU celebrated the European Day of Languages through linguistic diversity, plurilingualism and lifelong language learning, Leonard Orban, Member of the EC in charge of Multilingualism, outlined in a statement the benefit of multilingualism for the European citizens. He also stressed the importance of learning foreign languages as soon as possible although it is never too late to learn it. In his view, English should not be the only language used in our global economy, because the best language for business is the language of the consumer. The European Commission organised a seminar on "Language Diversity: an asset to make the most of" and an exhibition on Multilingualism to help to encourage an understanding of European Linguistic Diversity and to better exploit the cultural, social and professional opportunities linked to languages. A series of events to celebrate languages took place in and around the European Commission’s Berlaymont building in Brussels. There was an exhibition on language related projects, music and singing in different languages and multilingual games, all open to the public.
