In Partnership with the Global Language Network, NYU Washington DC will hosted G-Fest, an international festival of languages and cultural diversity.

G-Fest showcased ethnic and cultural diversity, celebrated unique worldly traditions, encouraged cultural exchange and understanding. The event featured interactive country booths, dance performances, cultural displays, and more, and allowed students and guests the opportunity to learn the customs of our friends around the globe.

The Global Language Network (GLN) is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization whose mission is to provide opportunities to learn any language at a minimal cost. We offer affordable language classes in more than 60 languages taught by trained volunteers.

GLN envisions a peaceful, cooperative and inclusive world where people practice and model tolerance, understanding, and social responsibility across languages and cultures. Our vision is based on the premise that language is a fundamental tool that unlocks human potential and empowers people to transcend cultural barriers and make a positive impact in a changing global society. Language offers new perspectives, broadens horizons and enriches lives because it enables individuals to establish invaluable connections around the globe.
In order to realize our vision, we aim to establish a diverse network of lifelong language learners within the United States and abroad.
