English Language Day 2021: Each year, nations come together to celebrate the importance of the English language around the world. On 23 April, communities from every country unite in this global celebration. The United Nations has declared that every year will be an international language week. The idea is to declare one or each of the six official UN languages – Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish – as the theme for a specific day in September and to use this opportunity to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity.
It is also designed to motivate people to use these languages in their everyday communication and work throughout the year.”We believe that communication is fundamental to human interaction. That’s why we’re committed to reaching everyone in the world, no matter your native language. We’re proud to be on the forefront of multilingualism—from our international offices and globally-minded employees to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, available in over 250 languages.” Said the officials.
-English Language Day – They picked this day in his honor because it is thought to be Shakespeare’s birthday and the anniversary of his death. As well as being the English language’s most famous playwright, Shakespeare also had a huge impact on modern-day English. During Shakespeare’s time, the English language was changing, but his influence on the language meant that he introduced hundreds of words and phrases we still use today.
A lover of language, Shakespeare used words in new ways and popularised many phrases and sayings we still use today. Our mission is to create a modern format for his work, packaging, updating, and simplifying it so that the world gets to enjoy his genius. English is a language that has been enriched by the many people that have spoken it over the years. This has made the language so powerful in the world.
