The National Modern Languages Week is targeted at all pupils in the schools and high-schools in France, as well as their families and the general public. The theme, first chosen for 2016, “Osons les langues/Let's dare to speak languages”, has been renewed for this second edition. This week, again organized in May, aims to raise awareness, among the general public, about the linguistic diversity present within the country and the advantages that modern languages represent. It also seeks to encourage the desire to learn and use languages.
The objectives of this Week are to:
- highlight a topic that can bring together language and/or language related projects and foster their impact
- raise awareness about the importance of languages for professional integration
- value plurilingualism
- encourage mobility and international openness
