Vier de Europese Dag van de Talen met ons mee!

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

In Europa worden 800 miljoen Europeanen, vertegenwoordigd in de 47 lidstaten van de Raad van Europa, aangemoedigd om, ongeacht hun leeftijd, meer talen te leren. De Raad van Europa is ervan overtuigd dat taalkundige diversiteit een instrument is om intercultureel begrip te vergroten en dat het een belangrijk element is in het culturele erfgoed van ons continent. Om die reden promoot de Raad van Europa meertaligheid in heel Europa. 

Op initiatief van de Raad van Europa wordt de Europese Dag van de Talen sinds 2001 elk jaar gevierd op 26 september – samen met de Europese Commissie.

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.

Welke taal is het?

We kennen allemaal deze situatie: in een bus, een café, op straat… horen we 2 mensen praten in een vreemde taal – en we vragen ons af welke taal dat is. Oefen mee en de volgende keer dat je dit meemaakt, zal je veel vlugger kunnen ontcijferen om welke taal het gaat!
