I’m just thrilled to hear about this new competition organized by the European Union. Tongue Stories invites submission from participants in 31 European countries to share stories of how learning a language has changed their life:
Share your story with Europe
How languages changed your life, or just one day.
How knowing a foreign language made you happy,
How languages surprised you; made you laugh,
moved you, made you feel proud, or simply useful.
Send your contribution, tell us a nice story and inspire people to use different languages!
While I confess that I’m a bit sad that this competition is only in Europe, on the other hand I am absolutely thrilled to see that the EU is taking on the languages and leadership movement so proactively! Learning languages changes us and in so doing, we change the world!
