Celebrate International Mother Tongue/Heritage Language Day.
Celebrate International Mother Tongue/Heritage Language Day
Officially February 21 annually
Heritage Language Day is celebrated in February of each year as a day dedicated to recognizing, promoting, preserving, and celebrating all heritage languages used by peoples of the world. This event is a wonderful opportunity to showcase our membership and diversity through music, song, dance, and literary works.
We want to share a video created by SOHL (Saskatchewan Organization for Heritage Languages) in celebration of Heritage Language Day. SIA’s very own Christina Wong and a few of the Saskatoon Multilingual Schools have contributed to the online event. (The Chinese Language School of Saskatoon, and Saskatoon Norwegian School). A special shoutout to SIA’s own Ranya for her exceptional filming and video editing skills for the SIA greetings.
