Bonjour! Willkommen! ¡Hola!
Every year, the 26th of September marks the European Day of Languages. Mastering a foreign language opens doors to lucrative jobs, new cultural horizons, and a whole new way of looking at language itself.
This year, ach class has chosen a country and children came into school on Friday 24th September dressed up in the colours of that country. We all then took part in various activities based on their country during the day. It was fantastic fun! In the gallery below, you can see some of the fantastic outfits our students put together!
Learning a language is difficult, and it takes a lot of confidence to succeed. In our language classes, our children are taught to believe in their ability to learn, allowing them to keep progressing without getting demotivated by difficult concepts and words.
Set up by the Council of Europe, the European Day of Languages has three general objectives:
1. Alerting the public to the importance of language learning and diversifying the range of languages learned in order to increase plurilingualism and intercultural understanding.
2. Promoting the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe, which must be preserved and fostered.
3. Encouraging lifelong language learning in and out of school, whether for study purposes, professional needs, purposes of mobility, or pleasure and exchanges.
By marking the day at Moredon, we hope to broaden the horizons of our pupils.
