European Day of Languages

25th September 2017

European Day of Languages

 

European Day of Languages is celebrated on the 26th of September each year. This day was established to show the diversity of languages within Europe and to encourage more people to learn a language, by showing the benefits of additional languages.

At Salusbury we celebrate ALL LANGUAGES, not just the European ones (there are over 6000 languages spoken in the world)!

 

To contribute to the celebration, we are planning some fun class activities for the children. We will be playing language games, listening to music, learning greetings and a few basic expressions in different languages, and finding out about the benefits of learning languages.

 

Here are some ideas that you can try at home:

  •          Find out where a toy has been made – do some research on this country,
  •          Trace your family history – do your relatives come from other parts of the world?
  •          Find some foods from other parts of the world – where are they from?
