World Languages Day 2012 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison

The University of Wisconsin-Madison Language Institute invites Wisconsin high schools to submit a Statement of Interest to participate in World Languages Day 2012 with groups of up to 30 students on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 from 8:30am-2:00pm in Union South on the UW-Madison campus.

Applying to participate in World Languages Day involves a two-part process. First, teachers submit a Statement of Interest by Friday, September 21. The Language Institute will inform teachers by Friday, September 28 whether or not there is spot for their school at World Languages Day. Second, schools will then confirm their participation in World Languages Day by submitting a form that includes the principal’s signature and a final count of participating students.

World Languages Day is a “college-for-a-day” experience that brings 600+ high school students and teachers to the UW-Madison campus for a day of introductory language lessons, interactive presentations and performances showcasing a great variety of world languages, regions, and cultural topics. Because of the generosity of our sponsors, participation this year will once again be free-of-charge; school groups need only pay for transportation to the UW-Madison campus and any substitute fees required by the school.
