Foreign languages open new doors for us. It is never too late to learn a new language and utilize its opportunities. Cultural institutes and consulates representing 12 European countries will educate visitors at the Istanbul Congress Center on Oct. 28 to celebrate European Day of Languages as a part the International Education Fairs of Turkey's (IEFT) 32nd International Education Fair.
