Why are you helping us?

We believe deeply and truly in the right of individuals to learn and use their regional or minority language, both in a private and public context.

If we believe in this right, we are convinced that this is an important vehicle for personal development, but we are also aware of the enormous economic benefits of plurilingualism by naturally facilitating Exchanges, with the many neighbouring countries of the same Germanic linguistic roots.
