World Languages Day

Welcome to Cornell World Languages Day!

 

Cornell World Languages Day highlights the importance of language learning, cultural awareness, and global literacy. The event brings middle and high school students to campus, showcasing the opportunities for language learning and international studies at Cornell, including the many student clubs. Speaking another language creates bridges between and among individuals and cultures – bringing people closer together and fostering cross-cultural understanding. WLD stresses not only language learning, but cultural awareness as well. The core message of the event is that language learning is a gateway to learning about and engaging in the world.
