This Sunday once again there will be a world wide Twitter campaign in celebration of UNESCO’s International Mother Language Day 2016.
People all around the world will be tweeting in their mother language to raise awareness of their languages. You can join the celebrations by tweeting in your language on February 21.
Participants will use the hashtag #MotherLanguage, along with the hashtag of their language (for example: #Yawuru #Adnyamathanha #Gunggari ).
Last year there were 111 Australian languages represented. So share this message with your Twitter followers and get tweeting this Sunday.
Further information on how to get involved is available on the campaign website.
Tag us @FirstLangAU if you would like us to retweet.
