Celebrate the European Day of Languages with us! 22 years celebrating linguistic and cultural diversity
Throughout Europe, 800 million Europeans are represented in the Council of Europe’s 47 member states and all are encouraged to discover more languages at any age, as part of or alongside their studies. This stems from the Council of Europe’s conviction that linguistic diversity is a tool for achieving greater intercultural understanding and a key element in the rich cultural heritage of our continent. Therefore, the Council of Europe, in Strasbourg, promotes plurilingualism in the whole of Europe.
At the Council of Europe’s initiative, the European Day of Languages has been celebrated every year since 2001 on 26 September – together with the European Commission.

My best friend

In my point of view, a perfect friend is the one that you can always relate with, that you can trust and that is always there for you.In my opinion, it is very hard to find a friend that has all of this, because nowadays everyone is bad and doesn’t treat their friends or even…


My best friend is Luana, she is 15 years old and lives in Arões, Fafe. I met her when we were both in sixth grade but we didn’t become best friends or friends. I don’t really remember why or when we became friends, but she is one of the best people I know.

Luana is very pretty, she is tall, thin, has brown eyes and dark brown hair. She is very friendly and whenever she laughs she makes people always happier.

I can tell she is funny, a good listener and a reliable person, so I know I can always talk to her, and she will listen to me and try to help. She is kind, generous and is always there when I need her.

To conclude, I am very lucky that we are friends as she always makes my life easier and more fun.

The one person in the world that will give you equal love and devotion like your parents is your best friend. My best friend is Xana. She is 15 and we both study in the same school. Having a best friend like Xana makes my life easier. In any crucial situation, the first person that comes to my mind is Xana. Our mums are also very good friends so I’ve known her since forever and I can’t really remember when we became friends.

Xana is not very tall, she’s sleek girl with long dark wavy hair and brown eyes. She is pale and has freckles, also, has a warm smile. When we go out, she always wears a pearl necklace, she doesn’t really like as accessories but she really likes that one. She always has time for me even in her busy schedule. Whenever I am having a problem, she helps me by providing the best solutions. Many times, I am mystified by her ability to just sit and listen to me. I feel like one of the main reasons why I formed such a bond with my best friend was because of the qualities she possesses. She is genuinely funny and has an ironic sense of humour. Xana is very entertaining in nature. She seems to be enlightened on all aspects of life, such as family or relationships and finds it easy to relate to almost anyone, she’s very sociable. Also, we have a lot of interests in common we both love formula 1, Italian food, cats, music, etc. but at the same time we can have really different opinions about certain things. We do almost everything together, Xana is like my sister at this point. She’s so mature for her age and above all that, she’s royal and trustworthy, I trust her with my life.

All in all, the bond I share with my best friend is one of my most prized possessions. Both of us inspire each other to become better humans and I´m so lucky to have Xana in my life.

My best friend is Kino. Kino is 15, he’s from Montijo and his actual name is Carlos Miguel, “kino” is just a nickname.

I’ve known him my whole life. He’s my best friend because he brings joy into my life, he is the personification of glee. Kino´s always laughing and making others laugh.

Kino is quite tall and bulky for his age. He is 6ft tall and weighs 70kg. Kino has brown hair and dark brown eyes. He is a bit plump, but he rides his bike to school every day, so I think it’s helping

I must say that he is a super reliable person, the one that’s always there for me. Kino is also very funny with all his witty remarks and funny faces.

All in all, I’m very lucky to have someone like Kino be my friend and I´ll always treasure our friendship.

In the difficult current context in which we live, it seems important to promote knowledge about the different countries of the world and their unique realities. Collaborative work is an essential tool for promoting school success in its various aspects: dissemination of effective and meaningful learning; promoting confidence in the ability to carry out a life project and providing successful citizenship.

Each 10th, 11th classes opted to study and analyze a country within the scope of different subjects.
The students collaborated to build a site, decorated their classroom door, according to their chosen country, voted for the best door and participated in a discussion forum.

I’m not an ordinary kid…

I´m not an ordinary kid I don´t like being ordinary; I like what´s out of the ordinary. I like to have my own style, get out of the ordinary. I speak alone in front of the mirror, I imagine friends in my head and I like that. When it´s raining and I´m in the car, I see which drop falls faster as if they were in a race. On the street I play with the pavement squares, I try not…
