Let’s have a look at the what the last 2020 online edition came up to.
Once a year, the European Union celebrates every aspect of multilingualism and language learning. Even though the past edition had to go online because of the pandemic, it allowed thousands of people to participate from home. The event was simultaneously translated in 4 languages and thanks to the efforts and synergies of the organisers, it turned out to be a success.
This year’s main event will demonstrate the European Commission’s broad support for the implementation of the Recommendation of the Council of the European Union (EU) on a comprehensive approach to the teaching and learning of languages.

Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, will launch the event and give an overview of the policy context.
