The Official Language School of Valdemoro celebrated the second edition of the European Day of Languages. In this occasion, besides the languages which are already traditional in our school, attendees could enjoy new languages such as Catalan and Yoruba, a curious language that is spoken in Nigeria.
The act was very interesting and served to realize what languages represent in our societies and the real importance of the different languages of the world and their cultural contribution. For this reason, on the European Day of Languages, their most beautiful words are used as a tribute to each different language. Unfortunately, part of this cultural legacy is in danger: more than one hundred languages die every year.
In a nutshell, I would like to end with a beautiful sentence by Nelson Mandela that summarizes the meaning of the different languages of the world. «If you speak to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you speak with him in his language, that reaches his heart».
