September 26
gallery "Rakurs" (2nd floor)

Every year, on September 26, the European countries observe the Day of Languages, paying special attention to language study at school and lifelong language learning. The language is the main means of communication, after all. Now this holiday has come to our country.

14 tables – 14 languages. The event’s guests will be able to overcome the language barrier during the traditional Speak Dating, the so-called short sessions. A conversation with native speakers will allow you to improve your language skill and try several foreign languages at once. The holiday will be held within the walls of the “treasury of knowledge,” the National Library of Belarus.

The event offers workshops on Austrian, English, Belarusian, Bulgarian, Hungarian, Danish, Yiddish, Italian, Lithuanian, German, Polish, French, Swedish, and sign language. Each session with professional teachers lasts about 10 minutes and gives a general idea of a language.

The event starts on September 26, 16.00, gallery “Rakurs” (2nf floor), entrance on the right side.

All interested are invited to attend the European Day of Languages! Entry is free.
