European Day of Languages-European Commission
The first European day of languages was held in 2001 as part of European Year of languages when hundreds of events were organised, reaching millions of people in 45 countries. Organised jointly by the EU and the Council of Europe, the European day of languages continues that work, to raise public awareness of the languages used in Europe, to promote cultural and linguistic diversity and to encourage people – schoolchildren and adults – to learn languages.
