“Without language, one cannot talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history or appreciate their culture and poetry.”

The United Nations recognizes the 23rd of April as English Language Day, but the day is about more than just one language. The day celebrates multilingualism and cultural diversity and seeks to promote the use of all official languages throughout the UN and its member countries.

While English is the universal language of our modern day society, it is also important to remember that all cultures have their own unique heritage, language and traditions that must be upheld and sustained, rather than be forgotten and replaced.

This date was chosen as the 23rd marks the day traditionally observed as the birth and death days of William Shakespeare, who helped to develop English into what it is today.

We at Learning Cubed wish you a great English Language Day!
