Brush up your Shakespeare, Goethe, Molière, Dante, Cervantes or whoever: Day of Multilingual Blogging

Yes, brush up your Shakespeare, Goethe, Molière, Dante, Cervantes or whoever, or start learning a new language.

Tomorrow, Sunday 26 September 2010, people all over Europe celebrate the European Day of Languages, organised by the Council of Europe and the European Union as an inspiration to language learning.

For bloggers in Europe there is a special event on the Internet tomorrow: the Day of Multilingual Blogging. The blog post behind the link offers some suggestions how you can participate, as well as information about the event, the Facebook page and the Twitter hashtag #babel. Because the event is arranged by the Commission Representation in London, and the information is in English, it is especially important that bloggers spread the word in other languages too.

For a richer life, knock aside a few linguistic or national borders and join the blogging carnival!
