 The European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September. Europeans are encouraged to be “plurilingual” – to learn multiple languages. Here are some bilingual and plurilingual celebrities

“Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states are encouraged to learn more languages, at any age, in and out of school. Being convinced that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent, the Council of Europe promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.” (European Day of Languages, 2013, Council of Europe.)

Here are free language lessons from “Games for Language.”
