Journée européenne des langues 2019

Mini language courses

For the seventh time, the partners of Lisez l'Europe, with the collaboration of the Centre de langues, the Département de littératures et de langues modernes and the Bureau de valorisation de la langue française et de la Francophonie of the Université de Montréal invite you to take part in their annual celebration of the Day of European Languages in Montreal.
This happy hour event takes place Friday, September 20 2019 from 5pm to 7pm at the Carrefour des arts et des Sciences of the Université de Montréal, room C-2081, 3150, rue Jean-Brillant – Côte-des-Neiges metro station. Limited seats offered.

At this festive event, we will offer mini language courses in Catalan, German, Innu, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Sarde and Spanish. There will be room for 25 students per mini course; we take reservations through Most mini courses are meant for people with no prior knowledge of the language, others aim to work on a specific aspect of the language in a playful way.
During the reception, after the mini courses, we will host an interactive quiz which will allow a team to win a selection of European literature books, as well as two tickets for shows taking place during the Festival international de la littérature de Montréal (from September 20-29 2019), which will be drawn among all the participants.
What is the European Day of Languages?
The European Year of Languages 2001, jointly organised by the Council of Europe and the European Union, was successful in involving millions of people across 45 participating countries. Its activities celebrated linguistic diversity in Europe and promoted language learning. Following the success of the Year of Languages, the Council of Europe declared a European Day of Languages to be celebrated on 26th of September each year.
