FLIS Day is Oregon's largest foreign language and culture event. FLIS presenters are faculty and students from more than 40 different countries, and represent UO's 22 foreign language, linguistics, and international studies programs and departments.
We're also pleased to have cultural presentations from international students in the UO's ICSP. And, as always, we have special guest performers, like Azucar, Parfait Bassale and UO's own Dance Africa, K-Aire, and the Wushu Team.
High School Students — you will have many chances throughout the day to use your language skills as well as acquire new ones. This year's offerings are exceptionally rich in diversity and type—from workshops to cooking to social justice issues. Talk to your teachers about whether your school is planning on coming this year.
Are you a university student or community member who would like to get involved with Foreign Language Day? Consider volunteering, and you can join in the fun!
There will be a brief training session during the week before Foreign Language & International Studies Day, and a free t-shirt for those who volunteer for two hours or more.
