In Spring 2019, the Center for Educational Resources in Culture, Language and Literacy (CERCLL)  launched the UA Language Fair, an event designed to raise the visibility of the wide range of languages that students study at The University of Arizona. The event was open to all students, faculty/staff, and visitors to campus. Departments, programs, and UA student clubs representing the languages and cultures taught at UA showcased the languages taught in their departments and spoken in their communities.

Participants enjoyed free food, games and other activities that celebrate the benefits and opportunities that come from communicating in another language.

In 2019, the following languages were represented:

  • American Sign Language
  • Ancient Greek
  • Arabic
  • Chinese
  • English as a Foreign Language
  • French
  • German
  • Hebrew
  • Italian
  • Japanese
  • Kazakh
  • Korean
  • Latin
  • Navajo
  • Persian
  • Portuguese
  • Russian
  • Spanish
  • Tohono O’odham
  • Turkish

With representatives from the following programs on hand, to share information about their offerings as well:

  • Critical Languages Program
  • Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) scholarships for language study
  • Global Studies Program
  • UA Study Abroad

Current students in language programs joined in the fun, and new ones were recruited for Fall classes!
