San Francisco, CA • Chinese • June 15, 2009 July 10, 2009
San Francisco, CA • Chinese • July 13, 2009 August 7, 2009

CAIS Institute is offering two intensive Chinese language programs for high school students and for 1st-3rd grade SFUSD Mandarin Immersion students. The first intensive Chinese language program is open to Bay Area high school students. Students will enhance their language skills from a beginner (with no prior Chinese experience) to a high-beginner/low-intermediate level. Participation in one session, with a passing grade, is the equivalent of 60 hours of foreign language coursework. Students earn 5 district course credits for foreign language from the SFUSD. Students, who have successfully completed two sessions totaling 120 hours of language instruction, are eligible to receive up to an entire year of foreign language credit from SFUSD. In an effort to support San Francisco’s two new elementary Mandarin Immersion public school programs, CAIS Institute will offer a Mandarin immersion summer camp for children entering grades 1-3. In collaboration with San Francisco Unified School District, CAIS Institute has developed a tailored curriculum that complements and integrates with the existing curriculum from SFUSD, thereby reinforcing and furthering the children’s language learning. Students will experience Chinese language and culture through a wide variety of traditional and cultural activities in these fun, immersion-based activities in addition to structured classroom learning.

CAIS Institute Startalk Elementary Mandarin Immersion Program

Chinese • June 21, 2010 August 13, 2010
  • Chinese American International School, San Francisco, CA

CAIS Institute, an affiliate of Chinese American International School (CAIS) provides a unique K-4th grade summer program developed in direct response to San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) administrators, their families and the Multi-lingual department of SFUSD. The majority of SFUSD Mandarin immersion students originate from families that do not speak Chinese. Our objective is to provide enhancement, continuity for retention over the summer, and a fun environment to reinforce and expand their language skills and culture. Priority registration is given to SFUSD students enrolled in Mandarin Immersion who are on Free or Reduced lunch. The SFUSD programs are new and serve a diverse ethnic and socio-economic demographic. These students do not have access to a comprehensive, culturally rich summer program that reinforces their Mandarin language capabilities. Each day students experience Chinese language and culture through a variety of cultural activities in addition to classes focused on reading, writing, listening and speaking. Language acquisition comes naturally to students as a result of their participation in these fun, immersion-based activities. STARTALK funding enables us to make this Mandarin immersion summer camp available to SFUSD families that otherwise would not be able to have or afford such an opportunity.
