World Language Week

World Language Week 2023 Information

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.

Nominated students complete a submission form that represents their ability and appreciation for language learning.  ASL students are also encouraged to submit by January 20, 2023.
