European Day of Languages

I like 26th September because it's the European Day of Languages.
Launched by the Council of Europe to start...

Celebrating linguistic diversity,
plurilingualism, lifelong language learning

Play the game of languages:

I hope that the "European Day of Languages" will encourage many people to learn a new language. Especially in the United Kingdom where the interest in learning languages seems to be declining.

You may know that four schools in Britain have introduced Esperanto, the neutral international language, in order to test its propaedeutic values?

The pilot project is being monitored by the University of Manchester, and I believe the project deserves academic appraisal.
