Schedule for Language-Related Events

January 2016


These sites contain language-relevant dates and links, especially anniversaries such as “Day of the language”, fairs for books, education and languages and other events that may be associated with the acquisition and representation of languages and foreign languages in conjunction.

There were mainly recorded herein those dates that have an international respect. Of course, I always try to take into account the interests and wishes of the visitors to my sites, so if you want here to find also important regional events so please send me a short message.

Should you not find an important event or an important meeting in this list so I would kindly ask you also for your message. I will then try to prepare appropriate information for you.

For some events, especially foreign trade fairs, information regarding time or place is missing. These events are marked blue and are checked monthly for a possible upgrade. In such case this change will be highlighted in red for a week and then changed the status of the current selection.

2016 - January



World Day of Braille 


World Day of Braille
Remembrance day about the importance of invention of this font for the blind and its inventor, who was born on January 4, 1809. His biography is one of many examples of how much has been slowed down in its development and perhaps even completely prevented by the blindness and mental immobility of the public and of the civil service: From completion until the recognition for use in French schools for the blind Braille had to wait twentyfive years and he did not see the success of his invention.
