Upcoming International Cafés

November 15, 2017 - Language Diversity Fair

  • International Center Lobby
  • 2:00 - 4:00pm

Come celebrate the many languages used and learned in our community at the Language Diversity Fair. Showcasing the intimate relationship between language and culture, the fair will give participants a chance to experience many different languages and enjoy first-hand the cultural contexts in which they are used.

Learn to sing in Spanish with a Mariachi band, to write Chinese characters through Chinese calligraphy and paper-cutting, to say the salutations of Indian and Pakistani festivals in Hindi and Urdu, to samba in Portuguese, and much more!

Additionally, explore some of the newest web-based language learning tools available and challenge yourself in pronouncing different languages in the friendly competition sponsored by the Davis Language Center. We look forward to seeing all of you Multilingual Aggies there!

In special collaboration with the Davis Language Center
