Experience Languages!

About the Experience Languages! Program

Experience Languages! offers Wisconsin middle and high school students the opportunity to experience world languages classes at the college level and learn about related learning opportunities such as study abroad, international internships, and residential language communities.

Groups of up to 30 students come to the UW-Madison campus to experience at least two different world languages from among those offered at UW-Madison. Students may participate in demonstration lessons taught exclusively for the group, or may observe or participate in a current UW-Madison language class. Teachers have the chance to indicate their top choices for languages and are encouraged to consider exploring less commonly taught languages. For example, a group of high school French students may wish to experience a UW-Madison French class *and* something different, such as Indonesian, Hausa, Polish, Turkish (to name just a few of the modern languages offered at UW-Madison)–or perhaps a classical language such as Latin or Greek.
