Registration is now open for the 2017 STARTALK: Chinese Language Summer Camp. This camp offers a 3-week immersion program for rising 3rd–8th grade students interested in learning the language and the culture of China. This year’s program will focus on the theme: “2017: a Chinese Odyssey” where students will build their proficiency of the Chinese language through the virtual travel of China. The students will be engaged in the journey in a fun and interactive learning environment.

The language instruction program will be complemented with cultural activities such as Chinese-culture-themed arts and crafts, Martial Arts, field trips, computer activities, and cultural games. The focus for novice level students will be on speaking the language, while students at the intermediate level will also develop reading and writing skills.
