Each year, the Department of World Languages and Cultures hosts an academic language bowl for local high schools. Students participate in French, German, Spanish, and Latin competitions. This year's competition will be held on March 16th, 2017.
Language and Culture Competition
Individual language sections will run simultaneously, with room numbers for French, German, Latin, and Spanish to be posted at the welcome table outside Carter Hall. Teams will answer questions on grammar and culture. As in previous years, grammar questions will cover material through the intermediate level in each language. This year, the culture questions will focus on a theme. We are currently compiling these themes and will update our website soon.
In German, Switzerland.
In Latin, N/A.
In Spanish, the Andean region including only Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia.
