On Friday, March 22nd at 5:30 p.m., join as at Voices Around Asia in the Howard Thurman Center. We'll have stations set up around the room, where your peers will teach you how to say useful phrases in Mandarin Cantonese, Japanese, Korean, Hindi, and Vietnamese. You'll also be able to do a fun, cultural activity representing each country. Come alone or bring your friends; either way, you're sure to learn something you didn't know and make new friends along the way.
Admission will be free and snacks provided (none of those airplane peanuts, either).
