International Mother Language Day

Posted on 19 February 2019

Join the Bangladeshi Society and Linguistic Society to experience International Mother Language Day.

Every two weeks, a language disappears taking with it an entire cultural and intellectual heritage. International Mother Language Day aims to explore and understand minority languages to preserve the beauty of this diversity of languages trough fostering peace, tolerance and respect for others. Linguistic diversity is increasingly threatened as more and more languages disappear. UNESCO believes the importance of preserving the beauty of diversity within languages and cultures and therefore, celebrates International Mother Language Day on 21 February. Multicultural and multilingual societies exist through this diversity and foster peace, tolerance and respect for others.

The event itself is free will be a fun packed event complete with singing, reciting poetry, playing musical instruments or just introducing of any language by any participants in their own language in few words. There will also be an interactive banner where the participant will write in their language “I love my Language and respect others”. 

This will take place Thursday 21 February in Exhibition Centre Lecture Hall P/X/001 2.30pm - 4.30pm
