Schedule for Language-Related Events

April 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.

UN Chinese Language Day
UN-Tag der chinesischen Sprache


The UN Day of the Chinese language is celebrated annually on 20 April. The event was established by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) in 2010, to celebrate the "Multilingualism and Cultural Diversity" and to also promote the use of all six official working languages ​​of the organization.

April 20 was chosen as the date for the Chinese language in honor of Cang Jie, a mythical figure who invented the Chinese characters probably about 5,000 years ago. The first day of the Chinese language was celebrated in 2010 on 12 November, but as of 2011 is the date of April 20 in the Chinese calendar in about Guyu accordingly. The Chinese celebrate Guyu (this usually starts at about April 20) in honor of Cangjie, because according to legend, cried the gods and spirits, as Cangjie invented the Chinese characters and it rained millet. The word "Guyu" literally means "it rains millet".
