APU Language Weeks - Celebrating Cultural Diversity

APU's legendary "Language Week" series will commence with Korean Week on Monday, April 24. The goal of our Language Weeks is to deepen the knowledge of culture and traditions of six Asia Pacific countries whose languages: Chinese, Korean, Malay, Indonesian, Spanish, Thai and Vietnamese are offered at APU.
New students who enter in Spring commence their studies of an Asia Pacific language (AP language) from the Fall Semester. These events assist new students in selecting a language to pursue at APU, and enable them to experience first-hand the multi-cultural environment on campus.

This year various stage events will be held at the Millennium Hall on Fridays throughout the Language Weeks to introduce different cultures and languages. Chinese Week will commence on Monday, May 8 and a stage performance will be held at the APU Millennium Hall. Please refer for program details below:
