NDO – The tenth European Language Day will be held virtually via the Gather platform on November 6 due to the development of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to the European Union National Institutes of Culture (EUNIC).

The event will feature the participation of eight countries and territories including Poland, Italy, Spain, Romania, France, Germany, Britain, and Belgium (Wallonie-Bruxelles).

On the 10th European Day of Languages, people who love European languages will have the chance to explore the differences between the languages and cultures in Europe through short language classes in English, French, German, Italian, Polish, Romanian and Spanish.

The Wallonie-Bruxelles delegation in Vietnam, who are among the founders of the EUNIC Vietnam, will provide mock classes in French as well as information about studying abroad in the Francophone region of Belgium.

The annual European Day of Languages will be an opportunity for people who are interested in the languages, culture, international exchanges, and studying abroad in the continent.

The participants can transform into characters and experience in a creative virtual world via Gather. A wide variety of interesting activities will be held within the programme, with many surprising gifts from the organisers.
