Come grab some delicious and multicultural free food today from 11 am to 4 pm on Low Plaza at the Language Fair for the Less Commonly Taught Languages.  (Yes, that is the title.)

Languages with participating instructors include Persian, Dutch, Czech, Finnish, Vietnamese, Swahili, Ukrainian, Wolof, Catalan, and other members of the Sole Language Instructors Club.  Students can meet with these instructors to discuss their language, culture, and traditions.

Food from some of the represented cultures will also be served throughout the day, which will surely be more authentic than John Jay’s attempts at ethnic cuisine.  What a great way to have a global day!

    The title's a little redundant, granted. The term "LCTL" is problematic to reconfigure, it has a specific connotation: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Less_Commonly_Taught_Languages

    This event is named after the main Academic Language Fair that takes place in September. Hence, the formula: "Language Fair" + "Less Commonly Taught Languages".

    Thanks for the feedback. We'll contemplate a rebrand for the next go-round.

    PS: on another linguistic/style note, it is indeed "flyer": http://www.dailywritingtips.com/flier-vs-flyer/
