World Language Week
World language educators and students are encouraged to celebrate the power of languages to be college, career, and civic ready.
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.
Teachers will nominate students by March 1st, 2022. Nominated students complete a submission form that represents their ability and appreciation for language learning. Awards will be published during World Language Week, March 31st – April 6th.
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.
