Multilingualism ensures that all EU citizens can follow the work of their democratic representatives in any of the European Union’s 24 official languages. Linguistic and cultural diversity is one of EU’s strengths and is woven into the EU Treaties as a core value. Multilingualism Day is your chance to see this diversity in action.

You can take part in Multilingualism Day 2021 online and at the House of European History.

Yeni yıla eğlenceli bir workshop ile başlıyoruz! Yüksek lisans ve son sınıf öğrencilerimizin organize ettiği 'O Çeviri Türkiye!: Geleceğin Şarkı Çevirmenleri mi Doğuyor?' başlığı altında gerçekleştireceğimiz şarkı çevirisi atölyesine hepiniz davetlisiniz. Etkinliğimiz kapsamında öncelikle 3-4 kisilik breakout room’lara ayrılıp şarkı çevirileri yapacağız, sonrasında da çevirdiğimiz şarkıları hep birlikte seslendireceğiz.

Bölümümüz öğrencileri olarak, bölümümüz öğrencileri arasında düzenlediğimiz etkinliğimizi önceden açıkladığımız tarihte gerçekleştiremeyeceğiz. Yeni tarihi en kısa zamanda açıklayacağız. Müzikle ve sağlıcakla kalın. :)

Zoom linkini etkinlikten önce sizlerle paylaşacağız.
