European Day of Languages

September 26, 2011

26 September – European Day of Languages – a world of connecting. What would the World be without languages? Without words. Silence. Just imagine for a second.
Words can make one’s day. Or break it. Spoken or unspoken …
“In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.” (Martin Luther King)

    Yes, today is the European Day of Languages. You may be interested to know that several British schools have introduced Esperanto in order to test its propaedeutic value. You can see details on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INCr1bV8kGk

    The Council of Europe has also provided some phrases and expressions in Esperanto, which you can see here http://www.goethe.de/ins/se/prj/ets/mlg/gep/enindex.htm

    The Esperanto online course http://www.lernu.net has 125 000 hits per day and Esperanto Wikipedia enjoys 400 000 hits per day. That can’t be bad 🙂


  2. Thanks for the information, Brian. Interesting indeed.
