United Nations: General Assembly | Periscope

Knowing a different language at the United Nations can be a big help. At a U.N. meeting, you will hear many languages spoken and see many different kinds of dress and customs. Helping people from different cultures communicate is an important part of the U.N.

The United Nations marked its 70th anniversary in 2015.
