Since the five countries that take part in the present Comenius project all use different languages (French, English, Hungarian, Czech, German and Spanish), we feel it is a great idea to celebrate with our students The European Day of Languages 2010, today September the 26th, and thus, we invite all the people visiting our blog, to join this European Council initiative which includes varied national and international events, games, posters to download and the possibility to learn very interesting facts about languages. Did you know, for example, that no language is in itself more difficult than any other? -all children learn their mother tongue in the same natural way and with equal ease.
"The main aims of the European Day of Languages are to raise awareness of the rich diversity of Europe and to encourage people to learn more languages"
