European Day of Languages

Did you know that more than 220 languages exist in Europe? No? Then I’ve got another fact for you: Back in 2001 the 26th September – today – was proclaimed to be the European Day of Languages by the Council of Europe.

The European Day of Languages is a yearly event. It celebrates the linguistic diversity of our continent with

  • over 220 European languages,
  • 24 official EU languages,
  • about 60 regional/minority languages,
  • and many more spoken by people from other parts of the world.
