On 26 September we are celebrating European Day of Languages by organising a day-long written discussion for the EPALE community. Don’t miss your chance to share your experience in teaching languages to adults, any tips or challenges you’ve faced, learn about best practices from experts, and discuss various topics with your peers.
On 26 September we celebrate European Day of Languages to raise awareness about Europe’s rich linguistic diversity, and the benefits of multilingualism and learning a new language. With the increase of globalisation people more often come across foreign languages. For example, in London alone there are about 300 languages spoken. For adults learning a new language can improve their job prospects, their brain health, and it is culturally enriching. Learning a new language can also be an important social integration tool for those relocating to a foreign country.
In honour of European Day of Languages, EPALE will be hosting a day-long discussion which will be moderated by language teacher and polyglot Alex Rawlings and our thematic coordinator for Quality, Andrew McCoshan. Don’t miss your chance to share your experience in teaching languages to adults, any tips or challenges you’ve faced, learn about best practices from your peers, and discuss various topics with the EPALE community!

EPALE’s teams across Europe worked hard to find interesting case studies, thought-provoking blog posts and helpful resources on the topic of languages and adult education. To see a full list of all our content on the topic, visit our thematic page Languages (content varies depending on language version).
