Join EDL's international "happy birthday" video

Since 2002, it has been the goal of the European Day of Languages to promote and enhance Europe's rich linguistic diversity. This year, to commemorate the EDL’s 20th anniversary and to celebrate multilingualism, the European Centre for Modern Languages invites everyone to participate in an EDL international happy birthday video.

To take part in this celebration, send us a video saying/singing "Happy Birthday" in as many languages as you can using the form below. You can also post your video on any social media you like and send us the link. But there is a catch! You only have 20 seconds to do so. The aim is to compile as many videos and languages as possible and publish them on our website as part of the celebrations for the European Day of Languages. Are you ready to show the world what you are capable of? If so, read the instructions below and unleash your true linguistic potential!

  1. Please keep in mind that, if you decide to send us the video instead of uploading it to social media, the preferred format is MP4.
  2. By sending us the video link you agree that we can use it free of charge on our websites, and on promotional media. Of course we will always add your name to it.
  3. Submission deadline: 30 September 2021.
