Gonzaga University STARTALK Program

Spokane, WA • Chinese • June 29, 2009 August 7, 2009

Mandarin Chinese is the most spoken language in the world today. Knowledge of Chinese will be a significant advantage in the future, especially in the Pacific Northwest, due to its location on the Pacific Rim. However, opportunities to study the Chinese language are lacking for high school students in the Eastern Washington area. The Gonzaga University STARTALK Program addresses this need by providing beginning-level Chinese instruction to high school juniors and seniors in our region. This six-week program includes three hours of formal instruction in Chinese language and culture, four days per week. During the lunch hour, instruction in language continues through informal conversation with the instructor and native-speaker conversation leaders. The program lasts from 10:00 to 2:00, Monday through Thursday. Due to federal funding obtained to help support the program, the cost for the six-week session is only $370, which covers tuition, books, lab fees, and lunches. The program is limited to a maximum of twenty students and, therefore, has a competitive application process. Inquiries can be addressed to the program director, Benjamin M. Semple (semple@calvin.gonzaga.edu; 509 313-6721) or to the administrative point of contact, Lisa Meyer (meyerl@gonzaga.edu; 509 313-6783). To apply, go to http://www.gonzaga.edu/startalk.
