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 23rd Annual Spanish Field Day will be held on Tuesday, March 25, 2014.
What do you do at Spanish Day?
Activities include a visit to our Spanish-speaking country (see the passport and visa links below to learn what students do at 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.
We also have 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:
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 March 14, 2014. 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).
