Of the 7000 or so languages spoken today nearly half of them are endangered and could go extinct within this century. It is estimated that a language disappears every two weeks. At The British School Warsaw, we strongly promote the use of English as a Common Language, however, it is imperative that our students appreciate how very important their mother language is as part of their heritage and identity.
International Mother Language Day is celebrated around the world on the 21st of February and due to this falling during our half term break, we will be celebrating it during the week beginning the 24th of February.
In our Secondary school, this will be led by our older students, however, we would also like you to get involved in Primary and Early Years. If you speak a language other than Polish or English and would like to help in your child’s class in Primary or EYFS, please get in touch with your child’s class teacher so that they can arrange a time when you could come in and share your mother language and some simple words with our students.
