European Day of Languages 2018

Brussels, 27 September 2018

On 27 September, the European Commission will host an event to celebrate the European Day of Languages in the Charlemagne conference centre in Brussels:

Learning three languages in school: multilingual education and cultural expression

Participants will be able to take part in a discussion about policy and practice, enjoy poetry, music and pictures and discover an exhibition presenting some less known languages spoken in the European Union (EU). All this will demonstrate the richness of Europe’s linguistic heritage. The admission is free but registration is required (opens soon). A detailed programme will be published soon.

The European Day of Languages, established by the European Commission and the Council of Europe, is a yearly opportunity to raise awareness around language learning and linguistic diversity and to celebrate the linguistic heritage of the European community. On the occasion, a range of local, national and international events are organised across Europe: 

  • - activities for and with children, 
  • - television and radio programmes, 
  • - language classes and conferences.

Celebrate the European Day of Languages 2018 with us! Join the event in Brussels or discover other local initiatives organised by the European Commission and its partners in the EU Member States or search for more events organised by schools and other organisations in Europe and beyond.
