European Day of Languages

Posted by SJV - Friday 25 September 2020

Saturday 26 September is the European Day of Languages – to celebrate, students have been enjoying a few French, German and Spanish jokes in lessons today to keep them smiling. It may sound flippant, but whether you can tell or understand a joke in another language is a really good test of skills! The Council of Europe and the European Union celebrate linguistic diversity every year on 26 September, the objectives being to raise the profile of language learning, increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding, encourage lifelong language learning and to promote the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe. You can find out more at the official European Day of Languages website.

Students in 9C are pictured here enjoying their Spanish lesson.
