(25 September 2014) – The European Day of Languages will lead to many events tomorrow and in the next few days.

A European-themed cocktail bar in Budapest, multilingual concerts in Zagreb and Vilnius, a ‘speak’ dating session in Prague, a travelling exhibition in Paris featuring translations of Homer’s Odyssey and mini-language courses at libraries in Berlin: these are just some of the events planned tomorrow and over the next week to celebrate the annual European Day of Languages and linguistic diversity.

European Commission offices in Member States are organising or supporting many other events including the ‘LinguaFest’ awards in Bucharest, a Shakespearian storytelling session for children in Madrid, a language-based treasure hunt in London and the Drongo festival in Amsterdam.

The historic Piazza Ognissanti in Florence will be the setting for an open-air gathering to promote EU-funded initiatives to support language learning such as Erasmus+.
