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.

Kilmarnock Academy

Kilmarnock Academy write...

We plan to sell croissants, pains au chocolat and crepes at break and lunchtime. There will be French flavoured entertainment at lunchtime and during pupils' actual French classes, S1 and S2 pupils will be playing games in the assembly hall in French and S3 and S4 pupils will be enjoying a cultural and vocabulary quiz. The assembly hall will be decorated with the flags of all the European nations (made in class by S1 and S2 pupils) and we will also be singing and dancing along to some French songs.

We featured on the "Politics Show" on the BBC last year so we hope this year will be just as successful.

We are planning on holding our European Day of Languages on Monday 4th October.
