STARTALK: Furman Chinese Language Camp

Chinese • Residential Program
  • July 5, 2015July 19, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Furman University, Greenville, SC

The 2015 STARTALK Furman Chinese Language Camp is a two-week residential program from July 05-19. It is an intensive language program designed for 28 high school students who have taken at least one year of Chinese, or the equivalent. The program theme is: “You and I: Two Worlds Meet.” The ultimate goal of each day’s learning is to prepare the students for the evening one-on-one video chat with their language partners in China. Immersed in the topics of evening conversations, students live on the beautiful Furman campus with native Chinese language teachers and undergraduate Chinese-speaking camp counselors, build their language skills in intensive morning classes, try their hand at Chinese cooking, Taichi, dance, and games, attend lectures on contemporary Chinese culture and politics, and enjoy language-focused field trips. The program provides 7 hours a day of organized instruction and language-focused activities and weekend tours. Weekend activities feature a group hike with Furman's undergraduate students from China, meetings with the Greenville Chinese Cultural Association, a field trip to a Chinese grocery store followed by a dumpling-making party, a Chinese feature film, and a final farewell performance.
