When is Spanish Day?
Spanish Day is an event hosted annually by Northern Michigan University's Department of Modern Languages & Literatures. Northern Michigan University's 22nd Annual Spanish Field Day was held on Tuesday, March 19, 2013.
What do you do at Spanish Day?
Activities include a visit to our Spanish-speaking country (click here to see past instructions for Españolandia) and several competitions. As always, for crowd and maturity control, attendance is limited to students in their second, third, fourth or fifth year of Spanish. Please commit your students to act responsibly and to stay involved in the field day activities.
There is also a language bowl, singing, show and tell and skit competitions. Instructions for the competitions may change year to year, so check back for updates for next year's Spanish Day. Entry forms are required for each competition. Here are links to instructions and their entry forms from years past:
An awards assembly culminates the day. For your convenience, you might consider eating at the Wildcat Den located in the University Center.
Do you need to apply to attend Spanish Day?
Yes. Each year, we need to know how many students will come so that we can make adequate arrangements. For this reason, we encourage you to apply early--if we surpass 500 students we will likely have to turn subsequent applicants away. We also need to know how many teams/individuals will participate in each competition, so high school teachers must return the Reply Form to Tim Compton by the set deadline. All students will visit Españolandia, and they should all participate in at least one of the competitions. If you have questions or comments, call: 906-227-1107 or e-mail (email@example.com).
- Return the survey promptly.
- Arrange for transportation to/from the university.
- Have your students start preparing for the competitions.
- Expect further word from us
We thank you in advance for your continued support of NMU's Spanish Day.
