International Mother Language Day–Hold on to your tongue!

What is your mother language? Mine is Italian. February 21st is International Mother Language Day. This event has been celebrated since February 2000 “to promote linguistic and cultural diversity and multilingualism. (See the UNESCO site for more info). I have to admit this is the first year I’ve heard about it and only because I was invited to facilitate a drop-in event.

February 23rd, Saturday: I will be facilitating a drop-in activity for the whole family. Join me for Collage Button Pin Making. Bring words in your own language (printed on regular copy paper) and use an abundance of visually appealing collage materials. Location: Family Room across from the Britannia Public Library. Free.
