4th European Day of languages [fr] [中文]

Co-organised by the European Union Office to Hong Kong and Macao and the European Union National Institutes for Culture in Hong Kong, the 4th European Day of languages is going to take place at 2pm on September 26 at Festival Walk in Kowloon Tong, with the support of several European Consulates General in Hong Kong, amongst whom the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau is showing its prominent support.

With a theme of "SPEAK DATING EVENT", this is a celebratory event of the annual European Day of Languages. The general aim is to draw attention to Europe’s rich linguistic and cultural diversity, which has to be encouraged and maintained, but also to extend the range of languages that people learn throughout their lives in order to develop their plurilingual skills and reinforce intercultural understanding.

The European Day of Languages (EDL) was first celebrated in 2001 during the European Year of Languages. At the end of this campaign the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers decided to make EDL an annual event, to be celebrated each 26 September. Every year, millions of people in the Council’s member states and elsewhere organise or take part in activities to promote linguistic diversity and the ability to speak other languages.
