European Day of Languages!

Bonjour! 

Je t'aime!


Te quiero mucho. Vamos a nadar!


If I keep going, I will descend into curse words and weird slang.  But, hey, Happy European Day of Languages! Cute multi-lingual animation at link.

And here's a link to my Prick of the Spindle review of a new chapbook by Sarah J. Sloat, a poet who lives in Germany and likes poets who write in lots of languages.

Lovely review of the chapbook. I'll have to put it on my ever-growing list.

Ciao!

Yes, today is the European Day of Languages. You may be interested to know that several British schools have introduced Esperanto in order to test its propaedeutic value. You can see details on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=INCr1bV8kGk

The Council of Europe has also provided some phrases and expressions in Esperanto, which you can see here http://www.goethe.de/ins/se/prj/ets/mlg/gep/enindex.htm

The Esperanto online course http://www.lernu.net has 125 000 hits per day and Esperanto Wikipedia enjoys 400 000 hits per day. That can't be bad :)
