"If I had any tips for other students who have yet to take advantage of this opportunity [to take the STAMP test], I would tell them it is definitely worth it! It saves time, money, and lets you focus on classes in your major by fulfilling this language requirement faster."

-Emily (Class of 2019)

Regional World Language Showcase

Every year, the Modern Languages Program hostes the annual Regional World Language Showcase for regional language students and their teachers on March/April. Over 800 students attend and participate in a variety of activities, including poetry declamation, choir competitions, proficiency testing, and art work contests. Western contributes over $2000 in tuition scholarships to winners, as well as various other prizes.

See an article about the 2013 Showcase!

We invite you to volunteer! Hundreds of Kentucky high school students and teachers will come to WKU to compete in language contests and to participate in language activities. Practice your language skills by serving as a volunteer.
