NUI Celebrates European Day of Languages 2020

26th September 2020

On European Day of Languages this year, the National University of Ireland delights in joining with the Council of Europe and other organisations across Europe in a day-long celebration of languages, multilingualism and plurilingualism.

On this special day, NUI is proud to highlight its long history of supporting language learning among the student communities in all of its member universities and colleges and to showcase some of our most talented linguists.

Ar Lá Eorpach na dTeangacha i mbliana, is breá le hOllscoil na hÉireann a bheith páirteach le Comhairle na hEorpa agus na heagraíochtaí eile ar fud na hEorpa chun ceiliúradh lae a dhéanamh ar theangacha agus ar ilteangachas.

Ar an lá speisialta seo, tá OÉ bródúil as aird a tharraingt ar a stair fhada ag tacú le foghlaim teanga i measc phobail na mac léinn sna holl-ollscoileanna agus sna coláistí uile atá aici agus cuid de na teangeolaithe is cumasaí atá againn a.

We do this in a number of ways:
