WA Language Week 2024

Welcome to our dedicated page for Western Australia's Languages Week, an annual event celebrated from 4th to the 10th of August. Here at Multilingual Australia, we cherish this opportunity to shine a light on the rich tapestry of languages spoken within our community and across the state.

 

Western Australia boasts more than 240 spoken languages and dialects - a testament to our vibrant cultural diversity and the global interconnectedness we enjoy today. Language learning, linguistic diversity, and multilingualism are more than just aspects of our identity; they open doors to broader personal, social, cultural, and employment opportunities.
