Our world has become increasingly smaller, and access to information is now quicker and easier than ever before.  Awareness of other cultures, peoples, and countries is now keener as we become one global community.  But how much do we really know about each other?

The English Language Institute (ELI) at WSU is an international body of students whose native languages are not English.  The students come from all over the world and are learning English.  With this international resource, how globally aware are American students of the world and their ELI counterparts?

The challenge:  American WSU students* and can demonstrate how much they know about WSU’s global community and beyond.  The ELI students and teachers have compiled questions about their countries and the rest of the world to test students.

All testing will be done in the Foreign Language Technology language labs.  Sign-up will be limited to the first 25 students who attend the session.  Prizes will be awarded to those who answer the most questions correctly and within a specified time limit.

*restricted to WSU students who were born in the U.S. or Canada and/or have been in the U.S. for more than 10 years.
