Georgetown World Languages Day
You are invited to the first Georgetown World Languages Day, where we explore the opportunities that learning world languages provides!
Free to all participants, this event offers two panel discussions:
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Language Learning and Study Abroad
What would it be like to study abroad?! How much will my language improve if I study abroad? In this session, we will discuss these questions with Georgetown students who have traveled internationally.
2:30 pm - 3:30 pm World Languages in the Workplace
What opportunities will studying a world language bring to your career? Come and listen to how Georgetown alumni use their world language skills to succeed in their careers!
