European Day of Languages


For the seventh consecutive year, the school celebrates European Day of Languages. This is a holiday that not only reminds you that there are many languages, but also encourages students to learn them. Such celebrations broaden students’ outlook, foster a tolerant attitude to all nations and peoples, and help them understand the importance of learning foreign languages. The day began with an interactive game, “What Language Do You Know” from members of the school’s Euro club “Commonwealth”, during which students, parents and teachers of the school greeted and wrote greetings in different European languages. It’s incredible how many languages ​​our school family knows. The list of languages ​​even includes Japanese and Korean, although these are not European languages, but the children were very pleased to share their knowledge and show interest in the languages ​​of the world. During the breaks the students of the school participated in interesting quests “Sights of European countries”, “Guess the proverbs”. Students of grades 5-11 participated in karaoke “World Hits”, where they sang songs in different foreign languages. High school students took part in the “What do you know about European languages” brainstorming? Information-rich virtual trip to France was prepared by students of the 10-A class, during which everyone was introduced to the raisins of this European country. The Let’s Say Thank You for Languages ​​Without Borders campaign was conducted by 5th-grade students. Elementary school students participated in an interesting game about fairy tales and fairy tales in Germany. During the day, an exhibition of projects and booklets called “Many Languages ​​- One Family” was running in the school’s recreations.
