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 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!
