The STARTALK Arabic Academy at Penn State's University Park Campus, now in its third year, is an ambitious, intensive summer language program for 20 high school and college students to begin their study of Arabic.

Our curriculum includes many activities focused on a theme that reflects authentic and diverse situations in the Arabic-speaking world, while providing a realistic context for developing students' speaking, listening, reading, writing, and cultural skills.
