Linguhouse celebrates the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue!

As e.g. the Ministry of Education in Finland says it, The European Year of Intercultural Dialogue aims to “enhance the importance and the benefits of intercultural dialogue in every day living among all those living in the European Union, and to identify and share best practices in promoting intercultural dialogue in the EU, especially among young people and children. --- The objective for the European Year is to promote cultural diversity of Europe, highlight intercultural dialogue as an opportunity to enjoy and benefit from the richness of different cultures, their contributions and expressions in a daily life. This will be done by sharing experiences, opening dialogues with the civil society, pioneering diverse approaches and methods and developing new forms of intercultural dialogue using the means of arts and culture.”

Communicating skills are important, or at least should be important to everyone of us – whatever country we live in or whatever profession or social status we may have: the most important thing is to get along with each other. Although body language can be used in many cases and sometimes even very successfully, our language skills do matter. They do matter a lot.

Many of us would like to know some foreign languages. It’s not only that tourists want to order a couple of beers in a Mexican bar and they’d like to speak some Spanish. It’s not only that a guy would like to flirt a bit with a foreign girl in her exotic native language. It’s not even only that immigrants want to know some local everyday words in order to get a living. It’s not only that we all need to take some language courses at high school to pass the exams – and get a life. It’s not only that we think it’s fun to teach foreigners some words of our own native language – at least the bad ones...

Most of us like chatting with their friends and most of us are interested in other cultures. Peoples and cultures are interacting on a global level – now more than ever before. But the interacting grows even more in the next few years, when we’ll be a bit older and our children a bit wiser than we ever were. Luckily.

What’s your personal goal for this year? Would you like to have an intercultural dialogue?


Come and enjoy learning languages and knowing different cultures at Linguhouse!

Our whole Linguhouse Team welcomes You and wants to make it easy for You. Just visit our Study Room, Chat Room, Travel Room, Blog Room...
