The International Festival of Language and Culture (IFLC) originated from Turkey is the largest and most prominent organization for promoting world languages and cultures. It is dedicated to cultivate and educate the youth and create a platform to share their cultural heritage with their peers around the world.

The IFLC is an annual celebration and showcase for the diversity of linguistic talents from across the world. The purpose of this Festival is to promote a better understanding of the world languages and cultures and witness exceptional performances by students of diverse nationalities. The festival gives students the opportunity to showcase their talents in various competitions and is a great motivation for the students, teachers, schools, and parents.

The festival is an annual international celebration which began in 2003 with only 17 countries participating. Last year (2014), participation ballooned to 145 countries from five continents with more than 2000 participants.
