Event Date: 28/09/2020 10:00 (CET) - 12:00 (CET)

To celebrate the 2020 European Day of Languages, you are warmly invited to join us for an online conference from 10:00 until 12:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time).

‘Education begins with language’ is the title of a new European Commission report, which seeks to support the implementation of the Recommendation of the Council of the European Union (EU) on a comprehensive approach to the teaching and learning of languages. The report is based on research and a series of seminars produced by the Commission. 

Together, at the 2020 European Day of Languages, we will discuss

  • the role of language competences in the context of the European Education Area
  • how to boost foreign language learning
  • how to incorporate language diversity and support literacy in all languages in schools 

Visit the website for more information and to register for the event by 24 September.
