This year The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium is one of the randomly selected schools for Juvenes Translatores 2022, an online translation contest for secondary schools in the European Union.
The purpose of this event is to bring together language students and to put new life into the EU’s own motto to be ‘united in diversity’. In order to materialise it, we need to be able to understand languages other than our own. In the long run, learning languages will bring us closer and help us understand each other’s cultures, which will enable the young today — tomorrow’s adults — to study and work around Europe.
It all started in 2007 with the first translation contest ever. So far The DCG has participated in this contest for four times with much success. This year the contest will take place on 24th November 2022 and we have 5 represetatives from The DCG. Liza Knez, Iris Ambrož, Brina Gubanc, Elizabeta Tomac and Ana Leskovar are to translate from different modern languages, namely English, French and German. We shall keep our fingers crossed! /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
