Bí páirteach i gceiliúradh Lá Eorpach na dTeangacha!

Spreagtar 800 milliún Eorpach a bhfuil ionadaíocht acu i 47 mballstát de chuid na Comhairle Eorpaí le tuilleadh teangacha a fhoghlaim, is cuma cén aois iad agus is cuma an ar scoil nó lasmuigh di. Is deimhin leis an gComhairle Eorpach go gcuireann éagsúlacht teanga tuiscint idirchultúrtha chun cinn agus gur cuid thábhachtach d’oidhreacht shaibhir chultúrtha na hEorpa í. Dá bhrí tá ilteangachas á chur chun cinn ag an gComhairle fud fad na hEorpa.
Is tionscnamh de chuid na Comhairle Eorpaí i Strasbourg é Lá Eorpach na dTeangacha. Ceiliúrtar é ar an 26 Meán Fómhair gach bliain ó 2001.

EDL T-shirt contest winner 2021

The winner of the 2021 EDL T-shirt contest is Tímea Svetková from Slovakia. Congratulations!

"As a student of graphic design, I wanted to make something creative and simple at the same time. One of my first ideas was to create a mascot, that would perfectly capture this competition and what other animal than parrot? Parrot for me represents an animal that can talk in every single language, if you teach him. Under his wings he unites languages and therefore for me it represents unity the most. This competition was a great opportunity for me to make something meaningful in a modern artform."

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!
