English Language Month is inspired by the United Nations’ English Language Day. In 2010, the United Nations introduced an initiative dedicating one day to each of its six official languages. The language days recognize the importance of global communication through multilingualism and cultural diversity. English Language Day is celebrated on April 23, the birthday and death date of famed English writer William Shakespeare.
Inspired by English Language Day, we are dedicating the entire month of April to English language lovers and learners around the world. Get the party started – here are some great ways you can join in on the celebration:
