Tongue Stories | European competition about languages

The European Commission launches a new competition Tongue Stories, to share stories about speaking other languages in Europe.  The public can vote on the contributions.

The European Day of Languages 2010 marks the launch of the competition Tongue Stories.

Organised by the European Commission, the competition aims to demonstrate, through interesting and amusing anecdotes, how many different ways people can benefit from foreign language knowledge, and to inspire people to learn foreign languages.

Citizens over 18 living in 31 European countries are invited to share their stories on the advantages of knowing languages.

You can send your contribution in any of the 23 official languages of the European Union: Bulgarian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovene, Spanish and Swedish.

However, the content of the story may refer to any other language, not just European languages.
