Culture Night 2020 - Virtual Language Taster Classes

Languages Connect has teamed up with the European Commission again this year for Culture Night and we’d like to invite you to ‘Try a new language’ on Friday, 18 September.

This year, Culture Night is going virtual – so you can try out a new language from the comfort of your own home.

As part of our annual celebration of the European Day of Languages (26 September), we will provide 20-minute online taster classes in the following languages:  Dutch, French, German, Greek, Irish, Italian, Lithuanian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian and Spanish. This year, we have also added Chinese and Japanese.

Time: 17:00 to 21:00

The sessions will take place as follows:

  • Chinese, German, Lithuanian and Spanish beginning every 30 minutes between 17.00 and 19.00
  • Irish, Japanese, Portuguese, Romanian beginning every 30 minutes between 18.00 and 20.00
  • Dutch, French, Greek, Italian, Polish beginning every 30 minutes between 19.00 and 21.00

As this event will be a virtual one, pre-registration is essential at DGT-Dublin@ec.europa.eu in order to ensure that you receive the link.

Numbers in each session will be limited to facilitate interaction so get registered early.

There are lots of classes – so you can try out at few different languages and see which one you like best!
