UNESCO created National English Day to celebrate “multilingualism and cultural diversity”. April 23rd was chosen because it is William Shakespeare’s birthday. Shakespeare, as we all know, is considered to be the most famous English author. Shakespeare not only wrote some of the most influential stories and plays in English literature and theater, but he also contributed extensively to expanding the English language. It’s widely estimated that he created over 1,700 new English words.
