European Day Of Languages 2015 says
"Advancing Your Career Through World Languages"

Join the Goethe-Zentrum Atlanta and the Alliance Française d’Atlanta as they join forces to celebrate the European Day of Languages 2015 in order to help “foster the promotion of foreign language learning across languages and cultures, and to play an active advocacy role for the purpose of raising awareness of the importance of foreign language learning in a global society”.

No matter whether you are an adult professional or a high school student studying a foreign language – in particular French or German – and want to add something spectacular to your résumé, we'd love you to join us to celebrate languages and language/cultural leaning under the theme “Advancing Your Career Through World Languages”. This year, we will focus on how adding a second or third language to your résumé can really boost your career prospects.

The evening will be split into three major areas:

The keynote address with guest speaker Mr. John Woodward, Senior Director, Foreign Investment at the Metro Atlanta Chamber, who will discuss the importance of world languages in the business sector, focusing on intercultural relations and how having a knowledge of other cultures can help in your career

The panel discussion & Q&A will involve local business and academic leaders discussing the importance and benefits within the business sector to be linguistically and culturally literate, and respond to the audience’s questions and comments. Panelists will include:
Mr. John Woodward, Senior Director, Foreign Investment at the Metro Atlanta Chamber
Mr. James Blair, Managing Consultant, Navigator Consulting
Dr. William Nichols, Department Chair World Languages and Culture, Georgia State University
Ms. Marcia A. Spielberger, Consultant World Languages

The competition - will acknowledge and honor high school students who have created and submitted a 4 minute video focusing on the role world languages will have in their futures. High school students will video a mock interview on this subject, with middle school students recording a conversation about their dream job and the role world languages will have in that job. For more information on the competition and rules head to our website,

This is an excellent opportunity for all guests to broaden their horizons when it comes to learning a new language and the benefits it can have! You’ll get the chance to mingle and network with some of Atlanta’s international business and educational leaders, giving you the opportunity to forge some relationships that could contribute to a bright future in the business world!

This event is complimentary. It’s all happening here at the Goethe-Zentrum/Alliance Française d’Atlanta between 6:30 and 8:30 pm on September 24, 2015. An RSVP is essential as we work on a first-come-first-served basis; so make sure you get yours in early!

We look forward to seeing you there!
