European Day of Languages

European Day of Languages

Today Europe celebrated the day of languages!

We wanted to try and get our song Worlds Greatest in as many different languages as possible-

Do you know any of the words in an European language for our song?

Here are the lyrics in English- maybe your parents could help?

I am a mountain,
I am a tall tree, oh
I am a swift wind
Sweeping the country

I am a river,
Down in the valley, oh
I am a vision
And I can see clearly
If anybody asks you who I am, just stand up tall, look ’em in the face and say
I’m that star up in the sky
I’m that mountain peak up high
Hey I made it, hmm
I’m the worlds greatest
I’m that little bit of hope
When my back’s against the ropes
I can feel it, hmm
I’m the worlds greatest
I am a giant
I am an Eagle oh
I am a lion
Down in the jungle
I am a marching band
I am the people oh
I am a helping hand
I am a hero

Thank you to these children for sharing their home languages in assembly today:

Herow, Adam, Oskar, Jeoziadaque, Quezia, Claudia, Melanie, Vlad, Kuba, Vilte, Stephanie, Jovial.

 

We also listened to Worlds Greatest in Spanish

  1. I think celebrating language day is very much important because you have to learn how to respect other peoples languages. Like me I’m Spanish and Vilte she’s Lithuania and i respect that.

  2. I think that languages day is really important to most of the people,we need to learn how to respect their religion and respect how they speak.Like me I’m German and Varshneyee is Bengali.Other people come from a lot of country’s.When I say that I’m from Germany people didn’t believe me but when they got to know me better people respect that.

    • Yes, that is utterly right Swaathi. It is nice to know some facts about some people new to you. For example I found out in my new school that my teacher is full of jokes;I miss you so much Investigating Iguanas.
