The European Year of Languages 2001 is a joint project of the European Union and the Council of Europe and is also backed by UNESCO. The idea of the project is to make all Europeans aware of Europe's rich linguistic heritage and to increase appreciation of multilingualism. Other goals of the theme year are to get Europeans to learn more languages better, to encourage lifelong learning of languages and through understanding other people's language, to make it easier to understand foreign culture.
