St George's School write...
Our celebrations will run from Monday 27th September-Friday 1st October.
We will be holding a Teach a Friend a Language Week in our Junior and Lower schools (from P3-S1) and a series of lunchtime language tasters in languages not normally at taught at St George's in Upper School (S2-S6) delivered by a combination of staff from all parts of the school, and some students. On Friday 1st October we are hoping to hold a 'Chatterbox' session in our Upper School Hall with a series of stations where students can sit and chat in a number of different languages with other students and staff. We will hopefully kick the week off with an assembly on the Monday morning.
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.

Schools across Scotland will be celebrating the European Day of Languages 2010 in Septmber. This is a snapshot of what’s happening.
