We hope to celebrate European Day of Language around 26th September using greetings to pupils from our 14 partners in their national tongue saying:
“Greetings from ________________ we are looking forward to working with you and finding out that “We all came here from somewhere.” (the title of the project).
Then we can mark their position on a map of Europe and have a bubble with the greeting in it.
We will toast the project in our special spiced fruit punch.
The European Day of Languages (EDL) aims to celebrate linguistic diversity by showing people across Europe how important languages are and what fun can be had learning them. The European Day of Languages is 26 September. It was set up by the Council of Europe and was first celebrated in 2001. It’s getting bigger every year, with 45 countries now involved. Schools across Scotland will be celebrating the European Day of Languages 2010 in Septmber. This is a snapshot of what’s happening.
