Speaking My Home: A Community Celebration of Languages

12:00 PM – 5:00 PM
Central Library

Description

Did you know over 100 languages are spoken in Halifax, adding rich cultural diversity to our community? 

If learning a new language is one of your New Year’s resolutions, explore opportunities with the participants in our Language Fair and also enjoy some multi-lingual storytelling. 

Also, did you know people have given their lives to preserve their mother language?

Our afternoon of learning will also include the 2020 International Mother Language Day commemoration, in honour of the martyrs of the Bangladesh Language Movement of 1952.

Visit the event's Facebook page to win prizes by participating in a quiz related to the event.  https://www.facebook.com/event...
