European Day of Languages

Do you know how many languages are spoken across the European continent?

The Secondary Faculty of World Languages celebrated the European Day of Languages, with the objective of highlighting linguistic and cultural diversity. Through activities in each class, students were encouraged to learn about the vast variety of languages and cultures across the European continent. Students were joined together in small groups to create a travel brochure for a specific European country based on what they learned through independent research. Each group had to consider suggestions for sites to visit, things to do, the languages spoken, traditional foods and festivals, what makes each country unique and any special plants or animals in the collection of content for their travel brochures. Through this activity, Secondary students practiced the global citizenship values of being ethical and informed, as well as valuing diversity and inclusivity.
