CML Foreign Language Festival

On Thursday, November 10, the Classical and Modern Languages department was able to resume the tradition of the Annual Classical and Modern Languages Foreign Language Festival.  Several high schools were invited to participate in a wide range of activities, such as Italian through Music and Italian Hand Gestures, French & Food, Writing in Japanese and Chinese, Looking for the Goddess Athena, and Salsa Dancing.  They even had a Linguistics presentation and a planetarium presentation in French and Spanish.  Students were excited to be able to come to campus and learn about the programs available at Truman.
