High school students from all over the area come together to take on a tango dancing lesson, a game of Jeopardy in Japanese, and an introduction to German science fiction writing. It's Linguapalooza at the University of Evansville.

140 foreign language students from 11 high schools spent a day immersed in foreign language and learning about different cultures. Their teachers say it's a can't-miss opportunity.

"Everything is global," said Linda Huber of Evansville Day School. "We have a global impact, and I think it improves your chances to getting employment and also help you to just understand diversity a lot more."

While the students were in their classes, the teachers learned more about the opportunities available to UE foreign language students.
