Celebrating Europe’s rich linguistic diversity
Today (26 September) is the Council of Europe’s European Day of Languages.
There are 24 languages that are officially recognized within the European Union. There are also more than 60 indigenous regional and minority languages, as well as numerous non-indigenous languages spoken by migrant communities.
That’s not including the many immigrants who have made Europe their home and brought their mother tongue with them. More than 100 different countries are represented by those living in Europe.
