Celebrating a love of languages

Last week 47 countries across Europe celebrated European Day of Languages.

At Queen’s our sixth form language students led a very informative whole school assembly in which they showed a video they had created showcasing the many bilingual girls that study at Queen’s.

The commemorative day (26 September) was established in 2001 by the Council of Europe with the purpose of celebrating and preserving the rich language diversity that exists in Europe, recognising the value of plurilingualism in promoting tolerance and multicultural understanding, and highlighting the benefits of language learning for all.

Schools and organisations in the whole of Europe marked the event and at Queen's we celebrated linguistic ability from Europe and beyond.
