Walloon Language Preservation Project

Walloon Language Preservation Project

If you live or have lived in a part of eastern Wisconsin where Walloon/Belgian is spoken, or have another connection to this community, UWEC would love to hear your thoughts!  You are invited to participate in an anonymous survey about your experience with and attitude toward this unique heritage language.  The purpose of this survey is to obtain a quantitative description of community attitudes toward Belgian (or Wisconsin Walloon) to inform ongoing materials development and promotion efforts. The survey should not take much more than 5 minutes.  Please click on the "Survey" link below.
