FESTIVAL TASTES OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES
Students celebrated the second foreign awareness with a “Foreign Languages Festival” that took place at Izmir University of Economics (IUE). One thousand 400 students from 59 high schools in Izmir had a chance to experience the cultures, dances, and tastes of countries of 9 different languages. Participants were informed about Chinese, Russian, German, Japanese, Spanish, French, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, and English language trainings at the festival which was organized by IUE School of Foreign Languages. Students had the opportunity to learn about different cultures and languages of other countries at the festival where Ekrem Demirtaş, President of IUE Board of Trustees, and Prof. Dr. Oğuz Esen, Rector of IUE also attended.
Asst. Prof. Dr. Evrim Üstünoğlu, Director of IUE School of Foreign Languages, stated that high school and university students attended the festival where cultural components, dances-from tango to salsa-and music of different countries were promoted. She said that each country was introduced by international and Turkish students in traditional outfits. Asst. Prof. Dr. Üstünoğlu said, “We wanted to increase awareness about languages among high school students, and wanted them to experience the different tastes unique to each country. We wanted them to get acquainted with the cultures, dances, and music of those countries. We want them to make firm decisions while they are taking the steps towards their careers as they as they get to enjoy themselves.”

The participants were treated to a musical feast all day long by IUE Musicians Club groups.
