English Language Day History
English Language Day seeks to increase awareness about the history, culture, and achievements of the English language. English is a Germanic language, and it is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world. It has even earned the name lingua franca of the modern world, which means it is a universal language used for communication. This day makes up one of six UN language days. The aim is to celebrate multilingualism and cultural diversity by exploring main languages.
English Language Day was established in 2010 by the United Nations to promote the organization's six working languages. This day is observed annually on April 23rd. This date coincides with William Shakespeare’s birthday. Shakespeare is one of the most famous and well-celebrated English play writers and authors in history.
