Celebrating the European Day of Languages

On the European Day of Languages, 26 September 2012, treffpunkt sprachen – Plurilingualism Research Unit, Akademie Graz and the association [spiːk] offered another tour through Graz with the popular language bus. This time, we got to experience multilingual minidramas, speeches, short films, and singing plays following the theme “Sound and beauty of languages”. Many parts were left without language interpretation, so nearly nobody could understand everything. At the same time, however, everybody understood much more than they would have thought they’d understand.
