Bli med og feir Den europeiske språkdagen!

Europeere i hele Europa, til sammen 800 millioner i Europarådets 47 medlemsland, oppfordres til å lære seg flere språk, uavhengig av alder og uavhengig om de er under utdanning eller ikke. Europarådet er overbevist om at språklig mangfold ikke bare bidrar til økt interkulturell forståelse, men også er en viktig del av kontinentets rike kulturarv, og derfor fremmer rådet flerspråklighet i hele Europa.
På initiativ fra Europarådet i Strasbourg har Den europeiske språkdagen vært markert 26. september hvert år helt siden 2001.

The secret agent’s language challenges app  2022 

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.

Hvilket språk er det?

Vi har alle vært i en situasjon der vi hører to mennesker snakke sammen på et fremmed språk, på en buss, en kafé eller ute på gaten, og vi lurer på hvilket språk det er. La oss øve litt her, så vil du lett gjenkjenne språket neste gang det skjer.
