Celebra connosco o Día Europeo das Linguas!

Os 47 estados membros do Consello de Europa animan a máis de 800 millóns de europeos e europeas a aprenderen máis linguas a calquera idade, dentro e fóra da escola. Convencido de que a diversidade lingüística é unha ferramenta para lograr unha maior comprensión intercultural e un elemento clave na rica herdanza cultural do noso continente, o Consello de Europa promove o plurilingüismo en toda Europa. 
Por iniciativa do Consello de Europa en Estrasburgo, o Día Europeo das Linguas vénse celebrando, desde 2001, o 26 de setembro de cada ano.
