International Mother Language Day!

International Mother Language Day February 21st 2016

It is a Day for celebrating all mother tongues. In other words – a day to celebrate language diversity. Supporting language diversity is also about supporting inclusion and acknowledging that language diversity helps to enrich us all; that this diversity of languages is a treasure, not a barrier.
