14 Sep Eton Institute Celebrates the European Day of Languages for Greater Intercultural Understanding


Press Release:

European Day of Languages to be celebrated in UAE at Eton Institute:For a greater understanding of Europe’s diverse languages and cultures, Eton Institute is hosting the European Day of Languages with cultural activities, free lessons and massive discounts on its courses.

Dubai, 14th September 2014 – The European Day of Languages was first organised by the Council of Europe in 2001 as part of the European Year of Languages initiative. It is the day when we commemorate Europe’s linguistic diversity and the benefits of language learning. With the UAE as home to more than 100 nationalities, encouraging locals and expatriates to speak various languages can help the community understand each other better and overcome cultural differences. There are about 225 European languages and learning some of them will provide an extremely rich and valuable intercultural understanding among UAE residents.

Eton Institute, UAE’s largest training provider, joins the celebration of this year’s European Day of Languages on the 25th of September, 2014. In this event, attendees will enjoy and experience the rich cultural and linguistic heritage of Europe through free classes, cultural workshops, interacting with native speakers, music and food, among many others.

“Language learning offers a way of opening our minds to new perspectives and cultures. It can benefit people of all ages.  Even just a few words of another language can help you make friends and succeed in what you do when in another land,†commented Moaz Khan, Marketing Director at Eton Institute. He added, “One of the many ways to stimulate interest and engagement in language learning is for organisations to support language and culture in as many forms as possible. We at Eton Institute are very much committed to doing that.â€
