International Mother Language Day (IMLD) 2018

 International Mother Language Day (IMLD) 2018


On International Mother Language Day 2018, celebrated every year on 21 February, UNESCO reiterates its commitment to linguistic diversity and invites its Member States to celebrate the day in as many languages as possible as a reminder that linguistic diversity and multilingualism are essential for sustainable development.

UNESCO has been celebrating International Mother Language Day for nearly 20 years with the aim of preserving linguistic diversity and promoting mother tongue-based multilingual education.

Linguistic diversity is increasingly threatened as more and more languages  disappear. One language disappears on average every two weeks, taking with it an entire cultural and intellectual heritage.

How to celebrate Mother Language Day in your school


School Teachers

  • Encourage children to use their mother languages to introduce themselves and talk about their families and culture
  • Celebrate culture by having them read poetry, tell a story or sing a song in their mother tongues. Paintings and drawings with captions in mother languages can also be displayed.

Students

  • See how many mother languages your fellow students speak. Make a survey of the languages by interviewing them and publish the results on internet.
  • Help organize cultural activities such as films, plays and music that celebrate different languages.

PT GLOBAL EDU supports UN’s Global Sustainable Goals.
