High school students from across the state will be on campus this weekend competing in foreign language competitions at the Arkansas Foreign Language Teachers Association (AFLTA) State Foreign Language Festival.
The AFLTA State Festival provides an opportunity for students who have successfully competed in district competitions to continue to the next level and compete against students from other Arkansas schools.
Students will compete in a variety of events in categories based on the three most commonly taught languages: Spanish, French and German.
The theme for this year’s festival is “Many Languages, One United Voice.” The event was created to encourage excellence among students in critical areas of foreign language learning and to develop enthusiasm for the cultures from which the languages originate.
Categories for student competitions include extemporaneous reading and speaking, poetry recitation, vocabulary bee, art, culture bowl, drama and talent.
