Speaking Europe




Can you speak Europe? In a very European way, these are the signs pointing visitors' to the entrance at the European Parliament. Do you see your language here?

EU lesson no. 3 - Europe (EU) counts now 23 official languages, used for EU business.

I can only imagine the intensity of the discussions when the sign makers were deciding the order of the languages. Wonder if they flipped a coin? And does Belgium "win" for having 3 flags on the sign?

I would be anxious to find somebody who could speak my language if I was visiting.

See the latest windpower technology working here in Brookville.
