Exemplifying the Wisconsin Idea, Languages of the World Day is a signature precollege outreach program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison to introduce Wisconsin high school students to diverse languages and cultures. The program raises awareness of the rich linguistic diversity of the region and world, of the interconnected nature of language and culture, and of the transformative potential of language learning.
Held every two years, Languages of the World Day 2023 took place on March 1, 2023 on the UW-Madison campus. Over 525 high school students and their teachers from urban and rural school districts from around the state participated in the event, which included 43 breakout sessions led by approximately 60 UW-Madison faculty, staff and students on diverse languages, cultures, and artistic traditions.
