LSE celebrates European Day of Languages

Friday 26 September is European Day of Languages, which celebrates all the languages which are spoken in Europe (not just European languages). LSE will be marking this day with a range of activities. 

The Language Centre at LSE will be concentrating on awareness-raising and leafleting staff and students, and they will also be carrying out surveys. The Brunch Bowl will be specially decorated for the day and will feature a special international tapas menu with dishes from around the world.

Nick Byrne, who is director of the LSE Language Centre and chair of the Association of University Language Centres said: ' This a key date in the diary for anybody involved in languages or language learning, when the celebration of linguistic diversity, plurilingualism and the idea of lifelong learning is championed.'
