Feiert mat eis den Europäeschen Dag vun de Sproochen (EDS)!

Europawäit ginn 800 Millioune Bierger, déi vun de 47 Memberstaaten am Europarot vertruede ginn, dozou encouragéiert, a jiddwer Alter an ausserhalb vun der Schoul méi Sproochen ze léieren. Den Europarot fuerdert d’Méisproochegkeet a ganz Europa an der Iwwerzeegung, dass sproochlech Diversitéit zu engem bessere Versteesdemech tëschent de Kulture bäidroe kann an zu den zentrale Bestanddeeler vum Kulturierwe vun onsem Kontinent zielt.
Op Initiativ vum Europarot zu Stroossbuerg, gëtt säit 2001 all Joer de 26. September den Europäeschen Dag vun de Sprooche gefeiert.

NEW 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!

2019 - International Year of Indigenous Languages

Languages play a crucial role in the daily lives of people, not only as a tool for communication, education, social integration and development, but also as a repository for each person’s unique identity, cultural history, traditions and memory. But despite their immense value, languages around the world continue to disappear at an alarming rate.With this in mind, the United Nations declared 2019 The Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019) in order to raise awareness of them, not only to benefit the people who speak these languages, but also for others to appreciate the important contribution they make to our world’s rich cultural diversity.
