World Languages Day
Theme: Festivals
A Celebration of World Language Learning
March 3-4, 2017
World Languages Day is a celebration of language learning and competition for students in grades 6-12.

World Languages Day (WLD) introduces Wyoming foreign language students to the UW campus, exposes them to experts from around the world, and leaves a lasting impression of friendship and global understanding. The main event is a poetry and drama contest, in which the students compete in a number of categories for small prizes. We also have booths and activities to generate excitement about world languages and other fields of international study. A resource fair reveals opportunities available at the University of Wyoming. Last year, UW hosted 240 students and instructors from across the state. Languages represented include Spanish, German, French, Chinese, Japanese, English as a Second Language and American Sign Language.

Besides the language-focused events, students have a chance to get a taste of UW campus life. Our world languages graduate students will welcome our guests with a guided tour of campus followed by dinner at the Washakie Dining Hall, a Planetarium show and entertainment by international campus clubs. During these activities, visiting students form bonds with others from around the state.
