Students at any language proficiency level — beginning to native — are invited to share the cultures they’re learning about at an open-mic showcase, Melodies of the World, at 7:30 p.m. on Feb. 5 in in Carrington Hall, room 208.
Expressive arts to practice language, celebrate culture
Event organizer Jamahl Bonds, a junior global studies major, said students can use any expressive arts they wish — sing songs, recite poetry, perform dances and more — to celebrate the culture behind the languages they’re learning and to practice language skills.
How to participate in the event
Students interested in participating should simply show up, Bonds said. If they want the audience to have a translation of the language used in the piece, they can turn that translation into their language instructor in advance.
Date: Feb. 5
