European Day of Languages 2016
On Saturday, the European Commission Representation in Malta celebrated the European Day of Languages in St Anne’s Square, Sliema. L-Għaqda talMalti – Università helped in the organisation of this event.
Participating in the event, and each manning a different stand, were the Spanish Embassy, The Deaf Society, the Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Malta, Malta University Language School, DESA, The National Book Council, HOASA and Alliance Française.
Those attending were presented with readings in different languages with a particular focus on the works of William Shakespeare.
Different freebies were handed out including balloons with words which are difficult to translate, postcards, t-shirts, bags and bookmarks.
The climax of the activity was a monologue from Macbeth translated into Maltese by Alfred Palma, and acted out by Antonella Axisa under the direction of Immanuel Mifsud.
