The European Day of Languages is 26 September, as proclaimed by the Council of Europe on 6 December 2001, at the end of the European Year of Languages (2001). Its aim is to encourage language learning across Europe.
The general objectives of the European Day of Languages are to:
  • alert the public to the importance of language learning and diversify the range of languages learned in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding;
  •  promote the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe;
  •  encourage lifelong language learning in and out of school.
