All the activities mentioned above will take place in the San Mamés Engineering School (Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieria-Ingenieritza Goi Eskola Teknikoa). Enter through the Briñas street entrance. The classroom is P1G1A, meaning it's in floor #1 (which is actually the second) of the G building.

I'm a member of AEGEE-Bilbao, a non-profit association for the European youth.
Next Thursday afternoon, 17th of November, we'll celebrate the European Day of Languages (EDL). But what exactly is the European Day of Languages? The Council of Europe established it in 2001, in order to make people aware of the importance of learning new languages and to promote the cultural and linguistic diversity of Europe. The message we want to convey to young people is that language skills are not only important for professional or career aspects, but also to achieve a better cooperation and strengthen mutual understanding and friendship between different countries.
There is a limited number of places, which are assigned in a first come, first served basis. In order to know exactly how many people will come, we'd really appreciate it if you filled in the following google form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfR_Wrc50rTNctuMcoRaZnwGO5KSeoKB-UP7xfL6Cb3X2IRhw/viewform?c 0&w 1
