What is your favourite word?
The European Day of Languages (EDL) was first celebrated in 2001 during the European Year of Languages. It is celebrated each 26 September. Every year, millions of people organize or take part in activities to promote linguistic diversity and the ability to speak other languages.
The 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. EDL is an opportunity to celebrate all languages!
We asked students to tell us their favourite word in English. Have you ever thought about this? What is yours?
