Last month, after several years as a successful program geared toward school groups, World Languages Day invited the rest of the community to a full afternoon of activities.
Presented by the UW-Madison Language Institute, the event originally began as an opportunity for high school students from across the state to learn about the many languages taught on campus. Participants accustomed to more common languages, such as French or Spanish, gained exposure to ancient or less familiar languages, such as Yucatec, Maya, or Xhosa.
The Language Institute is a program of the College of Letters & Science with substantial support from the Division of International Studies.
