European Day of Languages
To mark European Day of Languages, we looked at some interesting facts about languages.
For example, more than half of Europe is bilingual and La Gomera has a traditional whistling language called Silbo which is still taught in schools!
We focused on cognates which look and sound similar to English so are very helpful when learning new languages. These include Fisch (German), Calculatrice (French), szponsor (Hungarian) and fforc (Welsh). How many can you think of?
Here are some in Spanish.
