European Day of Languages
Salut! Guten tag! Buon giorno! Shwmae! Hello! Yes, it’s European Day of Languages today, a time to celebrate the diversity of languages across our continent. Take a look at the EDL website for more information about the day and about languages in general. For instance, did you know that there are about 255 indigenous languages in Europe? Or that at least half the world’s population speak two or more languages? And there can’t be many people out there who know that Sandra Bullock is a fluent German speaker! If you’re thinking of learning another language, or just want to brush up on that secondary school French in time for your next holiday across the Channel, we’ve got lots of books and CDs to help you in Townhill and Swansea Business School Library. Pop in and have a look!
