Fier de Europeeske Dei fan de Talen mei ús mei!



Yn Europa wurde 700 miljoen Europeanen, fertsjintwurdige yn de 46 lidsteaten fan de Rie fan Europa, oanmoedige om, nettsjinsteande harren leeftyd, mear talen te learen. De Rie fan Europa is der fan oertsjûge dat taalkundich ferskaat in ynstrumint is om ynterkultureel begryp te fergrutsjen en dat it in wichtich elemint is yn it kulturele erfguod fan ús kontinint. Om dy reden fuortsterket de Rie fan Europa meartalichheid yn Europa..
Ferklearring fan Marija Pejčinović Burić, Sekretaris-Generaal fan de Ried fan Europa, ta de gelegenheid fan de Europeeske Dei fan talen.
"The European Day of Languages reminds us that learning a language is a step towards openness and respect for other cultures."

The beauty of languages

Every language harbours intriguing expressions, often accompanied by interesting or amusing anecdotes related to their usage. These reflect the unique charm and elegance of a language. Can you come up with an expression that you love – either from your native language or one you're learning— and provide the backstory or anecdote that explains its meaning?

Word of the year

Every year, countries throughout Europe participate in the tradition of selecting a "word of the year." This practice involves choosing a single word or phrase that reflects the social, cultural, or political trends and events of the year. The word of the year serves as a symbolic representation of the collective consciousness and prevailing themes within a society. It captures the zeitgeist and becomes a reflection of the shared experiences, concerns, and aspirations of the people.

Questions you never dared to ask about languages

For this year’s European Day of Languages we have produced a series of short video clips focusing on ‘Questions you never dared to ask about languages’ with experts covering a range of backgrounds and specialisations responding.
As the title suggests, the questions are ones that we might not wish to ask in front of an audience but, in fact, highlight important issues and address some popular misconceptions about languages and language learning. Do you have a question you would like to ask an expert?

To see subtitles on the videos, please activate this feature by clicking on ‘subtitles’ in the YouTube menu below the video. To change languages, click on the gear wheel and select subtitles>’automatically translate’ and select the desired language (the machine translation is provided by YouTube).
