Vincitore! Lausanne Wins Big At Language Fair

Bonjour. Hola. Hallo. Ciao. Namaste.

At the University of Memphis Language Fair on March 24, several Lausanne students said “hello” to awards after winning their categories at the fair.

Each year, the Department of World Languages at the University of Memphis organizes the fair, which showcases the importance of foreign language education.

More than a thousand students representing schools from across the Mid-South take part in the contest.

The Language Fair engages students in competitions challenging their linguistic, artistic, and cultural skills in Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Latin and Spanish.

The events include vocabulary quizzes, art, crafts, poetry recitation, music, song, dance and costumes. Additionally, the fair holds non-competitive performances and lessons throughout the day.

Lausanne students were responsible for many of the awards, including:
