International Mother Language Day

International Mother Language Day, on 21 February every year, is a day to celebrate and protect all the languages of the world. A language is much more than just a way of communicating: language, and particularly our mother tongue, is an important part of our culture.
In order to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to promote multilingualism, our primary and secondary students had an opportunity to work through the “International Mother Language Day Project” in their library hours where they could write the stories, record some idioms or sentences in their own mother tongue language by voice, then create QR-Codes. Finally, they got together to design some unique posters which were related to their work content.
“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” –  Nelson Mandela
