Schedule for Language-Related Events

November & Dezember 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.
