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.

Farr Primary, Inverness

We are starting a multinational project with 15 other countries this month so it was an excellent opportunity to send out a message saying,
Greetings from Scotland. We are looking forward to working with you and finding out that “We all came here from somewhere.”
Our partners replied in their own language and the children found the country on a map of Europe and drew a flag to match. They used these to test other classes on their knowledge.
It was a really good introductory activity.
Lauren P6 said, “It looks as if it would be harder to do spellings in Polish”
Euan P7 said, I can’t wait for us to find out more about these places. Can we meet these folk?”
