At the initiative of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, the European Day of Languages is celebrated every year across the EU, in order to celebrate linguistic diversity in Europe and encourage language learning.
The general objectives of the European Day of Languages are:
- Alerting the public to the importance of language learning and diversifying the range of languages learnt in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding;
- Promoting the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe, which must be preserved and fostered;
- Encouraging lifelong language learning in and out of school, whether for study purposes, for professional needs, for purposes of mobility or for pleasure and exchanges.
On this occasion, the Representation of the European Commission in Romania and EUNIC Romania will organize a Language Fair, which will be held on Saturday, 24th of September 2016, at the Museum of the Romanian Peasant. The public will be invited to pass through the stands and complete the language challenges, in order to win various prizes.
