Bienvenue, Bienvenidos, Salvete

 

The Department of World Languages and Cultures would like to welcome you to the annual Foreign Language Festival! 

Each spring, students from all over the state of Louisiana have the opportunity to compete in extemporaneous speaking, prose, poetry, music, theatre, and native speaker translation in both French and Spanish. Additionally, students have the opportunity to compete in the Latin Translation category. We expect to open all of the categories for the competition based on the number of participants. 

Our goal is to give high school students the opportunity to use foreign languages in a creative and public way, and to socialize with other students and teachers who are equally excited about language learning. 

We look forward to your participation! For more details on the competitions, please email the coordinators. Registration packet will be available soon!
