Summary/Abstract: The European Union is founded on ‘unity in diversity’: diversity of cultures, customs and beliefs - and of languages. Multilingualism is one of the basic principles and key features of the European Union. It refers to both a person’s ability to use several languages and the co-existence of different language communities in one geographical area. Bearing in mind that there are 23 official languages of the Union, and 60 or so other indigenous languages and a number of non-indigenous languages spoken by migrant communities, the importance of multilingualism in European Union cannot be understated.
