Statement on the Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the recent earthquake in Turkey and Syria. This is a difficult time, and our thoughts remain with those who have lost loved ones, and with all those who have been injured or affected in any way. We encourage you to join us in helping the affected communities overcome this devastating event. 


Türkiye ve Suriye'deki Depremlere İlişkin Açıklama 

Kalplerimiz Türkiye ve Suriye'de son depremden etkilenen herkesle birlikte. Bu zor bir dönem ve düşüncelerimiz sevdiklerini kaybedenlerle ve herhangi bir şekilde yaralanan veya etkilenen herkesle birlikte. Etkilenen toplulukların bu yıkıcı olayın üstesinden gelmesine yardımcı olmak için bize katılmanızı öneririz. 

Our first donation has been sent to AHBAP, one of the most active volunteer networks and the most coordinated organization in the affected areas. Please support us by watching the world language food tutorial videos our students made. We will keep donating for every 50 views a video gets.


Did you know October 16 is World Food Day? Inspired by the 2021 Theme 'Our actions are our future', Why Learn Languages is launching a year-round social good campaign to encourage more students to take action to address food insecurity for families around Washington State. We are proud to introduce to you.
-- the 'World Food Bridge'


1 in 10 Washingtonians constantly struggle with hunger. 1 in 6 Washington kids live in a household that faces challenges in putting enough food on the table. (Hunger Facts - Northwest Harvest). We aim to build a bridge between our World Language students and communities so students can apply what they have learned in class to help hungry people in need. We believe that food connects us to the world and culture. Our goal is to encourage students in world language classrooms to inspire each other through hands-on and food-related cultural activities while making the curriculum
more engaging!


Students make and submit world language-related food preparation tutorial videos. Our advisory board will select qualified videos according to the attached rubric. Those videos will be uploaded to the Why Learn Languages YouTube
and we will make a donation to our partner food banks for every 50 views a video gets. Unique to our campaign, we will donate boxes of food favored by different cultures to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion. Every student who
submits a video will receive a participation certificate. To promote authentic learning and provide students with amazing food experiences in the target culture, we will award the three language programs that contribute the most video submissions gift cards from our partner restaurants.



Middle school students and high school students in Washington. To raise awareness amongst younger world language learners, we will hold another relevant program for elementary students. Stay tuned!


Year-round, but our Recognition Ceremony will be held in March (National Foreign Language Month).


Upload your video in MP4 format and the signed waiver form to an online folder. Fill out the online registration form and post your shared link without requesting access in the form:
