Dathlwch Ddiwrnod Ieithoedd Ewrop gyda ni!

European Day of Languages 2021: 20 years celebrating linguistic and cultural diversity

Ledled Ewrop, anogir 800 miliwn o Ewropeaid a gynrychiolir gan 47 o aelod-wladwriaethau Cyngor Ewrop i ddysgu mwy o ieithoedd, beth bynnag eu hoedran, yn yr ysgol a thu hwnt. Mae Cyngor Ewrop yn argyhoeddedig bod amrywiaeth ieithyddol yn ffordd o sicrhau gwell dealltwriaeth ryngddiwylliannol, ac yn elfen allweddol o dreftadaeth ddiwylliannol gyfoethog ein cyfandir. Felly, mae Cyngor Ewrop yn Strasbourg hyrwyddo amlieithedd dros Ewrop gyfan.
Drwy fenter Cyngor Ewrop, rydyn ni wedi dathlu Diwrnod Ieithoedd Ewrop ar 26 Medi bob blwyddyn ers 2001.

The secret agent’s language challenges app  2021 

The challenges and quizzes contained within this app encourage learners – future international agents – to take advantage of the plentiful opportunities available to practice or learn more about a language beyond a classroom context. By passing through a series of levels you can rise from a lowly agent in training to become a master secret agent. You can compete with friends in achieving challenges, identifying countries and languages and completing quizzes. The challenges go from the easy, such as, “count from 1-10 in 3 different languages within one minute” to ones that are a bit more demanding, “together with a friend, write the words to a song/rap in a foreign language.

Which language is it?

We all know this situation: on a bus, in a café, on the street we hear two people talking in a foreign language. And we wonder what language it is. Let's do some training here and next time this happens to you you will easily recognise it!
