While many U.S. universities are cutting budgets for foreign language programs, Arizona State University's School of International Letters and Cultures is committed to providing students from Arizona and around the world with new opportunities in language and culture studies that will help prepare them for global citizenship.
In line with that commitment, the school organizes and hosts a Language Fair for high school students in the spring, which brings over 3,000 students from Arizona to the ASU Tempe campus each year.
The Language Fair gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements in learning a foreign language, and an incentive to continue their studies in the future. Students also gain insight into a range of cultures and languages via participation in various activities.
2014 Language Fair: Tuesday, February 11, 2014.
This year's language fair theme is L'amour et l'amitié: Love and Friendship. Love comes in many forms, from romantic and familial love to the love of friends, and this year's fair will center on the different way different cultures express love of family and friends.
