Nebraska Plans World Language Week 2020
Nebraska will celebrate World Language Week 2020 April 5-11. World Language Week celebrates the teaching and learning of world languages in the state of Nebraska. Nebraska has a long heritage of multilingualism from Swedish Oakland to German from Russia in Lincoln and Czech in Wilbur. Twentieth century immigration enriched Nebraska with more languages such as Spanish, Karen, Arabic, Bosnian, and Vietnamese. Nebraska also relies on languages to promote enterprise and build global relationships. Nebraska has long known that language has the power to make one college, career, and civic ready. Teachers are encouraged to share out their plans for World Language Week on our Facebook event page. Community businesses and organizations wishing to offer events may also share activities for World Language Week. Resources are available at www.education.ne.gov/worldlanguage.
