“They say that you can’t truly learn a language without immersing yourself in its culture. The same can be said the other way around, you cannot truly experience a culture, without knowing the language.”
May 21 was the World Day of Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development. Taking it Global, the largest online community of youth interested in global issues and creating positive change, is hosting a multilingual blog contest as part of a year-long celebration of multilinguism initiatives. Check out the first posts from two Canadians–one living in-country, and the other in Havana, Cuba–and join in the dialogue!
Let us know when you submit your entries to the multilingual blog contest; we’ll run an ongoing feature of the project here on the My Wonderful World blog.
