Learning Commons Language Tables let UNK students, faculty and staff enhance their language skills with fun games and activities in a casual, academic environment.
Language Tables are designed to allow participants to learn common phrases and good ways to say or describe things in context. Some games used in the Language Tables are “Taboo” and “Who Am I?”, both of which require participants to describe people, places, things, and emotions. In other words, Language Tables go way beyond knowing how to ask where the library is in another language! At the end of the semester, Language Tables often sponsor a “Final Event” with more competitive games like “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire” and “Jeopardy” that involve prizes!
In Fall 2014, the Learning Commons offers Language Tables for each of the four languages taught at UNK as well as Chinese.
