My word is ...

To celebrate European Day of Languages, we spoke to staff and students at the University of Oxford and asked them to share their favourite word in a European language. Watch the videos below to find out which words they chose and why.

What's your favourite word?

We'd love to hear what your favourite word is. Find us on Facebook and Twitter to share your word using the hashtag #mywordis.
