Portugal

Since 2001, the year in which the first European Day of Languages was established, Portugal has been an active member in the celebrations that aim to commemorate the linguistic heritage and cultural diversity common to the European continent. This year, since it is not possible to organize face-to-face activities, the Portuguese Embassy in Abu Dhabi, in collaboration with Camões I.P. (Portuguese Institute for Language and Culture), presents an online showcase of national culture. Follow us on this journey!
