Five students at Fresno State are at the forefront of Fresno Language Project (FLP). Its purpose is to change the view of Fresno through short video, highlighting diversity. Currently, the coordinators are seeking spokespersons for each language vibrant in Fresno County, filming begins
in mid-April at Fresno State. This senior marketing project is to significantly impact Fresno and the surrounding local communities.
Each spokesperson will represent their respective cultural background in this promotional video. FLP is currently compiling a script, with verified translations, that will shine light on Fresno’s distinctive and often undiscovered qualities. Initial research suggests that there are 88 different
languages spoken by Fresno County residents. This project is in the application status to set the Guinness World Record for most languages spoken in a single video.
The project’s website www.FresnoLanguageProject.com will be utilized to provide status updates on the project. It will also provide a platform for bilingual spokespersons and business sponsors to contribute to the project.
