European Day of Languages

Bonjour! Shwmae? The special days are coming thick and fast at the moment! Today we celebrate the different languages spoken throughout the world and the rich cultures they represent.

You can find out all about the European Day of Languages on the official website. There’s also lots of information on the CILT (The National Centre for Languages) website, including some ideas of how you might mark the day. Why not slip some greetings or phrases from different languages into your conversation today? If you need some help to boost your vocabulary, your Swansea Met library might be able to help. Use the catalogue to search for the language you’re interested in to see what sorts of books and CDs are available.

Hasta luego!


  1. Bonan tagon! I hope Esperanto won't be forgotten as our thoughts turn to language learning..

    I would like to argue the case for wider use of Esperanto. It is a planned language which belongs to no one country or group of states.

    Take a look at

    Esperanto works! I've used it in speech and writing in about fifteen countries over recent years. I recommend it to any traveller, as a way of making friendly local contacts.

  2. Thank you so much for providing the information regarding the Day of Languages!!Nice post!
