HAYS, KS -- The Fort Hays State University Department of Modern Languages will hold its fourth Foreign Language Field Day April 3, 2001, in the Memorial Union and Rarick Hall.
The field day offers high school students a learning opportunity to enjoy and develop their language skills and knowledge of different cultures. It is also a chance for students and language teachers from high schools throughout western Kansas to meet, exchange ideas, and enjoy and practice their language skills.
The day will begin with a welcome from Dr. Paul Faber, interim dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, followed by Session 1, cultural topics for language learning, and Session 2, exploring the campus by language and exploring new technologies in the Language Learning Lab.
The students will then break for lunch in the Memorial Union. In the afternoon students will participate in Session 3, learning songs and learning languages.
The field day will close with the award ceremony and farewell concert.
"The language field day is always fun for the attending students because it gives them the chance to meet and interact with other students and foreign languages," said Dr. Sue Firestone, chair of the Department of Modern Languages.
