The ANU College of Arts & Social Sciences and the ANU College of Asia & the Pacific are delighted to invite you and your students to the annual Languages Showcase on Wednesday, 31 May 2017 from 10am to 3pm.

This event gives Year 9-12 students from the ACT and surrounding regions the opportunity to come onto campus and experience an engaging, interactive and first-hand taste of university language studies. This event is suitable for current language students, and also students interested in learning a language other than English.

The day will feature short presentations from our leading language experts, as well as interactive language activities. The full breadth of languages available at ANU, including Asian, Modern European, Ancient and Middle Eastern languages, will be showcased, as well as an interactive dance performance at the end of the day. Lunch will also be provided.

ANU is ranked number one in Australia for Modern Languages and #26 globally*, and we teach more languages than any other Australian university. There is simply no better place in the country for students to continue or commence language learning at university.
