The Europa languages portal

This portal is the point of entry to information about languages from the European Union.
Whatever you want to know about languages in the EU, from the Union’s policies to encourage language learning and linguistic diversity, by way of a review of language skills in the Union today, to the rules for the use of the EU's own official languages, you should find the answer here.
The information in this portal is arranged by themes and views, to make it easy for you to find what you want without having to be familiar with the EU’s institutional structure.


The portal Environment for Young Europeans

On this website you can discover by yourself or together with your friends and classmates what the environment is and what is happening to it. It focuses on four themes that I think are very important and which the European Union has decided to concentrate on for the next 10 years: air, water, waste and nature.
