Goal of the Activity
  • - Teach  people about the different languages of the world.
  • - Foster more collaboration between Dutch students and international students, since InTenS consists almost completely out of Dutch people (since it is a Dutch-taught Bachelor's program), and the participants from ESN Nijmegen were almost all international students.

This was a language quiz in collaboration with the Radboud University linguistics study association InTenS. We did different rounds with questions that tested how well you can recognize different languages, how much you know about different languages (like certain words or facts about the writing system), as well as how much you know about general linguistics. This quiz was done in teams that consisted of people from both associations.

The event was designed to educate participants about different languages and foster collaboration between Dutch and international students.

Participants were engaged in various rounds of questions that tested their ability to recognize different languages, their knowledge of linguistic facts, and general linguistics. Teams were composed of members from both ESN Nijmegen and InTenS, promoting a rich cultural exchange and learning environment.

The Language Quiz successfully enhanced participants' knowledge of languages and linguistics while fostering intercultural collaboration. Attendees appreciated the interactive and educational format, which effectively bridged cultural gaps and provided a fun learning experience. The event strengthened bonds between Dutch and international students, achieving its primary goals.
