Language taster-sessions on offer to celebrate European day
Free language taster sessions will be on offer to celebrate the European Day of Languages on Thursday.
Europe Direct Aberdeen has organised the event in the Adult Lending section of the Central Library, which will see French, German, Finnish and Polish speakers on hand from 2pm to 3pm to teach participants some basic words and phrases which will be useful on business trips and holidays abroad.
There will be the chance to find out more about the range of language learning resources available to anyone by being a member of Aberdeen City Libraries.
While at the library visitors will be encouraged to pick up a copy of the European Day of Languages prize quiz for a chance to win a £20 voucher.
Ruth Gould, coordinator, Europe Direct Aberdeen said: "This annual European event aims to raise awareness of the importance of language learning and to promote the rich linguistic and cultural diversity of Europe."
