World Language Day 2022

WLD 2022 is coming on October 4, 2022. Check back here for updates.

Welcome to World Languages Day 2021!

We are excited to welcome you to World Language Day (WLD) 2021, which will be held on November 16th, 2021, from 8:15 am–12:30 pm.

Every year for 44 years, between 500 and 1,500 area high school students and their teachers come to the SIU Carbondale campus to celebrate a day of world languages and cultures. This year, faculty, staff and community members have come together to create a day jam-packed full of culture presentations and demonstrations from all of the languages and cultures taught at SIU and more!

Salsa with Julio, Zumba with Liz, virtual reality, language-focused gaming, name-writing in non-roman characters, cultural crafts and so much more awaits. We look forward to having you here to dance, learn and experience languages and cultures with us at World Language Day 2021.

We will continue to update this page as more information becomes available. Please contact if you have questions or would like to register your school for WLD.

WLD 2021 is brought to you by the School of Languages and Linguistics.
