Held at the library at Campus Falun, the event comprised five short lectures on the subject of grammar, each with a focus on a specific language. The day is one that is recognised by many universities, all with the goal of highlighting the importance of grammar.

"Grammar Day is required to raise the status of grammar and to spread the message that grammar is fun," says Charlotte Lindgren, Senior Lecturer in French and Educational Development in the School of Humanities and Media Studies.

In the library's Café Méli, a special Grammar Day cake was on the menu, while attendees were able to take part in a quiz where language was, of course, the focus.

One of the University's pods - Dupod - is a series of pods on the subject of educational development in higher education. Just prior to Grammar Day, it released two on the instruction of grammar:
