Admin / Biog History "Modern Languages has three kinds of student organizations for the languages it offers. There are language tables, language clubs, and there are national honorary societies. Language tables gather at regular intervals to provide conversation practice among learners and with native speakers. The most active language tables are the French Table coordinated by Eddy Cuisinier and the Chinese Table coordinated by Ke Peng. There are language clubs for all languages. These have officers and offer social and cultural activities such as game nights, mystery nights, potlucks, cooking events, movie nights, field trips, dance lessons, tea ceremonies, calligraphy lessons, service opportunities - a huge variety of fun events unique to the cultures of the target languages. Finally, the invitation to membership in national honorary societies recognizes the academic achievement of our language learners. The department has three such national honoraries - for French, German and Spanish." from the WKU Modern Languages website at http://www.wku.edu/modernlanguages/news_events/student_clubs.php
