busuu.com is officially accepted as project for the UNESCO´s International Year of Languages!

We are very proud to announce that busuu.com has been accepted as an official project of the UNESCO International Year of Languages.

UNESCO International Year of Languages As you may be aware, 2008 was proclaimed the International Year of Languages by the General Assembly of the United Nations who named UNESCO as the lead agency. The main aim of the International Year of Languages is to take action to promote multilingualism which is why busuu.com was accepted as an official partner!

Not alone that, as you will recently have seen on busuu.com, the initiative to promote endangered languages such as Silbo Gomero, which is also in keeping with UNESCO’s Programme on Safeguarding Endangered Languages as well as the UNESCO programme of Multilingualism in Cyberspace.

As part of this commitment for multilingualism, busuu.com plans to increase the languages available on the website within the near future because we also absolutely agree that “languages matter”!
