The Division of Humanities and the Foreign Language Oversight Committee, with support from the Provost’s Office and the Dean of Arts and Sciences, invite all members of the Brandeis Community (students, faculty and staff) to experience and celebrate the linguistic diversity of Brandeis. Individual language tables will host speakers of Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Italian, Latin, Japanese, Korean, Russian, Spanish and Yiddish. Stay for a few minutes or for the entire hour; just speak only the language of a specific table during your visit. Do you speak several languages? Visit multiple tables during lunch.

Participants are asked to sign in at their chosen language table to receive a voucher for the buffet lunch. While the amount of food is limited, we encourage late arrivals to bring their own lunch fare to the table of their choice.
