To celebrate the 2020 European Day of Languages, you are warmly invited to join for an online conference from 10:00 until 12:00 CEST (Central European Summer Time).
‘Education begins with language’ is the title of a new European Commission report, which seeks to support the implementation of the Recommendation of the Council of the European Union (EU) on a comprehensive approach to the teaching and learning of languages. The report is based on research and a series of seminars produced by the Commission.
Together, at the 2020 European Day of Languages, the following topics will be discussed:
- the role of language competences in the context of the European Education Area
- how to boost foreign language learning
- how to incorporate language diversity and support literacy in all languages in schools
Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, will launch the discussion.
