T: “If you talk to a man in  a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart”

Nelson Mandela

P1: The highlight of the European Year of Languages 2001 was the European Day of Languages, which was celebrated for the first time on 26 September 2001 in all 45 states taking part in the campaign. On the eve of the closing event of the Year, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe decided to declare the European Day of Languages to be celebrated on 26th September each year. Its aim is to encourage language learning across Europe.

P2: Now let’s listen to myth of the Tower of Babel. The gist of the story is thus: All human beings used to speak the same language. As they came to settle in Mesopotamia, they decided to build a city with a tower to reach the heavens. Through this endeavor, mankind intended to create a name for himself. God, however, had other plans. Mankind’s language was confused, and they were scattered over the earth. As a result, the city and the tower were never completed. Regardless of whether one believes that this story actually took place, there are several interesting ways of looking at it.

T: Why is it important to learn foreign languages today?

P1: A foreign language can contribute to a stronger personality.

P2: A foreign language gives you access to another culture. It gives you the ability to communicate and to exchange views with people all over the world.

P3: Learning a foreign language opens up a whole new dimension.

P4: The knowledge of foreign languages increases job opportunities in many careers where knowing another language is a real asset.
