Dickson backs European Day of Languages

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has said European Day of Languages is a chance for everyone across the world to celebrate linguistic diversity.

The MLA for East Antrim – who is also the Alliance Party representative on the Council of Europe – Mr Dickson added it is never too late, or too early to start learning additional languages.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “Across Europe there are many employment opportunities, but often a lack of knowledge of additional languages can stand in the way of securing a dream role.

“Learning additional languages is also a fantastic way to promote understanding of each other and overcome cultural differences. I would encourage as many people as possible to take an interest in learning additional languages – even a few words can transform any trip abroad.”
