Multilingualism Ambassadors

Poliglotti4.eu calls on language Ambassadors to lend their voice and image to the cause of multilingualism and the promotion of language learning and language diversity in Europe.

Find here every few weeks a new clip of one of our Ambassadors. Politicians, artists, every day people tell us about their life and about their experience with language learning and how languages helped them to be where they are today.

Our Ambassadors work in the field of education/language learning/promotion or have reached their current position in the field of entertainment, politics, economics or other because of his/her knowledge of several languages.

Poliglotti4.eu shares the aim of promoting the languages and cultures of Europe, and fostering dialogue and cooperation between people from different countries. This is of particular concern at the moment as we see evidence of a decline in the learning of languages among school children, university students and adults.

Linguistic diversity is an important part of European identity which should be cherished and nurtured. Although the European Institutions and the Council of Europe have made recommendations on multilingualism and launched a number of initiatives to encourage EU citizens to learn languages at all stages of their lives, and although national governments support language learning, take up among schoolchildren, university students and adults has been uneven and many people across Europe can still only speak one language.

Poliglotti4.eu and its partners are responding by taking the lead in a range of Europe-wide research and networking projects to support language learning and encourage people of all ages to learn languages. The endorsement of respected Ambassadors who have used languages to make a success of their lives is crucial to the success of our project, and will help persuade people that English is not enough.

In the long term I think that being multilingual is of great importance to understanding why other people from different countries act differently.
