The city of Thessaloniki
hosted a three-day event (May 22-24) celebrating and promoting the use of foreign languages, either well known or less spoken. In its third edition, the Multilingualism Festival
invited foreign consulates, cultural
institutes and Erasmus students to join in, while sending out a message of friendship, understanding and tolerance.
On behalf of Greece, the festival welcomed the contribution of Foreign Literature Departments of Greek universities, as well as public
entities which come into contact with non-Greek speakers, such as the city’s immigration bureau.
