The twelfth annual Linguapalooza at the University of Evansville is planned for Tuesday, October 4. The event, which is hosted by UE’s Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures, is an opportunity for area high school students to hone their foreign language skills through interactive cultural and conversational sessions.
The day will begin with breakfast and a campus tour in French, German, and Spanish. Planned activities include mini-lessons in many languages, including Arabic, German, French, Gaelic, Portuguese, Russian, Hausa, and West African Creole.
Students will also participate in a Quiz Bowl in German and a game of Jeopardy in Spanish, and learn about reggaeton, a genre of music that originated in Puerto Rico. They will explore several cultures, including that of Argentina, El Salvador, Germany, and France.
