Language Rich Europe

proudly sponsored by Rosetta Stone

According to Eurobarometer, 83% of Europeans value knowing other languages yet 44% cannot hold a conversation in another language. With globalisation and increasing migration, multilingualism is critical to intercultural understanding and cohesion in society, job prospects for individuals and competitiveness in Europe.

Language Rich Europe sets out to create an informed dialogue with leaders in government, educational institutions, public services, business and the media across Europe, highlighting the importance of multilingualism in achieving more prosperous and stable societies. Co-founded by the European Commission and working with a wide network of partners and specialists across 20 European countries, professional research has been carried out and will be presented as the Language Rich Europe framework for language policies and practices.

Bilingualism, The Newest Competitive Advantage for Companies

"I hope Language Rich Europe raises European wide awareness and recognition of multilingualism and plurilingualism in the private and public sector and crucially, also in the educational space."
"Periodically collected nation-wide data on language diversity will create increasing challenges to any monolingual mindset in multicultural societies and will function as agent of change in responding to multilingualism in any society."
"To become a cosmopolitan means to deal with the major questions of life: to work towards peace, justice, the exchange with other cultures, a change in gender relations or a different relation with nature. Therefore the knowledge of more than one language is indispensable."
