Within the programme of its Europe Direct Dubrovnik Information Centre and in cooperation with educational institutions and cultural associations, as well as the Albanian consulate, the French consulate, the Hungarian consulate, and the Spanish consulate in Dubrovnik, Europe House Dubrovnik is organizing the European Day of Languages celebration on the 26th of September.

An entertaining and educational programme is set to take place on Monday the 26th of September at 10:30 a.m. in front of the St Blaise Church. Primary and secondary school pupils, college students, representatives of associations, foreign nationals living in Dubrovnik and tourist guides are all partaking in the event, presented by the “Englishman in Dubrovnik,” Mark Thomas. At the same time, the Europe House Dubrovnik's young wandering librarians will sell second hand books in foreign languages in front of the Sponza Palace.

The European Day of Languages initiative was launched by the Council of Europe in 2001 in order to encourage multilingualism and multiculturalism in Europe. Through various events in all European countries, citizens' attention is being drawn to the importance of language learning for better intercultural understanding, at all ages, through formal and informal education. Europe House Dubrovnik is celebrating the European Day of Languages for the third year in a row. Last year's celebration was voted the most innovative event of the 2015 European Day of Languages on the European Day of Languages official website.

Come along to the European Day of Languages in Dubrovnik on the 26th of September at 10.30am in front of the St. Blaise Church and support this worthy event.
