Zusätzlich zur Tätigkeit als Koordinationsstelle des Europäischen Tages der Sprachen in Österreich war das ÖSZ in den letzten Jahren immer wieder selbst aktiv und hat unter anderem seit 2009 Sprachenworkshops unter dem Titel "Dober dias! Buenos dan! Mit vielen Sprachen leben und lernen" durchgeführt. Mit dieser Broschüre stellt das ÖSZ in Zusammenarbeit mit den Mehrsprachigkeitsexpertinnen Katharina Lanzmaier-Ugri und Catherine Lewis diese Sprachenworkshops nun als Modell für Pädagog/innen zur Verfügung. Darüber hinaus werden fünf ausgewählte Sprachenveranstaltungen präsentiert, die von Schulen am und um den Europäischen Tag der Sprachen durchgeführt wurden und auf spannende und kreative Weise das Thema "Sprachenlernen und Mehrsprachigkeit" aufgreifen.

They not only plan and teach the lessons, they also take over parts of the organization and timekeeping and emcee the opening and closing ceremonies. After the two periods of preparation Year 8 students pick up Year 1 students from their classrooms and the fun begins.

„I can speak Armenian!“ „I can speak Hungarian!“ „ I can speak Russian!“ Primary school children of the third district of Vienna exchange languages. For some of them it is a new experience. All of a sudden their first language, ignored so far, is appreciated. The „Landstraßer Sprachentag“ made it possible.
