International Mother Language Day

22 February, 2022

Today [21 Feb] is International Mother Language Day, and perhaps a good time to remind the HIFA membership about our other forums, especial HIFA-French, -Spanish and -Portuguese.

A full list of the HIFA forums can be found here:

We would encourage HIFA members to share the link with their connections around the world.

Best wishes
