Romanian Language Day. Cotrosini Palace will be lit up in the colors of the tricolor – Q Magazine

On the occasion of Romanian Language Day, President Klaus Iohannis sent a message that “along with encouraging reading, understanding, arguing and the correct use of language should become priority goals.”

Only by fighting functional illiteracy, Johannes emphasized, is there an opportunity to “allow as many people as possible to use the Romanian language to participate in the life of society”.

Here is the text of the presidential message:

“31 August marks Romanian Language Day, a celebration of those who think, speak and feel Romanian wherever they are.

The Romanian language is the key to our national identity and the home of a rich literature. Through the ages, our culture has defined, inspired and spiritually influenced entire generations.

At the same time, the Romanian language was and remains a real social bond. It brought us together and held us together through the toughest moments in our history. The language we speak connects us to each other and to the place where we were born or have roots – Romania. It is part of our identity, and we have a duty to protect and nurture it.

On this special day, I convey my full appreciation to the teachers of the Romanian language in the country and abroad, but also to the first mentors of any child – the parents. In the country or in societies beyond borders, they are supposed to proudly pass on the treasure of the language to generations of Romanian children everywhere.

In recent years, our country hosts an increasing number of residents whose mother tongue is not Romanian. It is important for everyone to have the opportunity to learn the Romanian language and to integrate harmoniously into Romanian society. Teaching and learning the Romanian language, as a non-native language, should become a permanent feature of our educational system.

At the same time, it is necessary to make a paradigm shift when we talk about the educational goals of learning the Romanian language. Besides encouraging reading, comprehension, argumentation, and correct use of language should become priority goals. Only by fighting functional illiteracy do we have the opportunity to allow as many people as possible to use the Romanian language to participate in the life of society and contribute to the development of society.

The Romanian language is the basis of our identity. We cherish it by using it properly, cultivating it, and helping others to receive the gift of its learning and enjoy its richness.

Happy birthday to the Romanian language and its speakers!

On the occasion of Romanian Language Day, Cotrosini Palace will be lit up in the colors of the national flag, this evening, starting at 8:30 pm.
