Commission Communication on Multilingualism: tapping the full potential of languages in Europe

Languages help citizens to enter into dialogue with people from different cultural backgrounds and to realise their potential by making the most of opportunities for mobility and business openings.

In its Communication, the Commission invites EU Member States and the other EU Institutions to join efforts to encourage and assist citizens in acquiring language skills and removing communication barriers. It proposes an approach which advocates including multilingualism across a whole series of EU policy areas.

The policy document proposes a series of concrete actions related to these questions and foresees a review of the progress made in 2012.
