The language centre invited everybody to free food, music and book publishing.
Friday, June 3rd 2016, Ørnevej, where IA Sprog is located, was turned into a seething, colorful marketplace with stalls and loads of people, who supplied themselves with delicious exotic food from the stalls in a street blocked for cars.
Inside in the yard at Ørnevej 30, there was even more food and drink along with music from the popular folk-rock-trio ‘Folkeklubben’. Students from the language center were responsible for the production of the many, delicious dishes: From Nepalese moms, chinese spring rolls, Polish soup to Albanian scallion pies, Indian chicken marsala and many many more.
Everybody was invited and the local residents took in great numbers advantage of the invitation from IA Sprog – and to get a copy of a book full of recipes and students’ stories of how it is to live in Denmark. ‘ Jeg er glade for min nye land” (I am happy to live in my new country) is the title of the book that brings the reader closer to the immigrants’ perception of Denmark and to the culture they bring with them.
