European Day of Languages posters

The European Day of Languages (EDL), a Council of Europe initiative, is held annually on 26 September to celebrate language and cultural diversity. The day was first celebrated in 2001, the European Year of Languages, and involves more people every year.

Winners of a European Award for Languages will be presented with their award on the day.

The EDL aims to:

  • alert the public to the importance of language learning
  • increase awareness and appreciation of all languages
  • encourage lifelong language learning.
