Mini language courses

The partners of Lisez l'Europe, with the collaboration of the Centre de langues and the Département de littératures et de langues modernes of the Université de Montréal invite you to take part in their 8th annual celebration of the Day of European Languages in Montreal.
Take part in a virtual happy hour event on Monday, September 27 2021!

At this festive event on September 27, from 5 to 7 pm, we will offer free mini language courses over the virtual platform Zoom in Algherese Catalan, Aragonese, Francoprovençal, German, Innu, Italian, LSQ (Quebec sign language), Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish. 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.
At the end of the evening, we will hold an interactive group quiz that will allow you to win several prizes:
  • a gift certificate (value of 100$) valid at Les Libraires;
  • a gift certificate (value of 50$) valid at restaurant Bo’Dégât (or 50 $ valid at Les Libraires if the winner lives outside of Montreal).

ATTENTION: registration is required on Eventbrite and places are limited. Participants will receive an email with a link to join the Zoom event with which we will present the 15 mini-courses (5 per 30-minute timeslot). Please download and install in advance the latest Zoom version.

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. Because of COVID-19, and in order to better prepare this online edition, we will exceptionnally commemorate this day on October 23rd this year.
