2011 Startalk North Carolina Student Summer Russian Program

Russian • July 18, 2011July 31, 2011Residential Program
  • Appalachian State University, Boone, NC

The 2011 STARTALK North Carolina Student Summer Institute in Russian will be a two-week, residentia- immersion Russian Language and Culture Program offered July 18 - July 31, 2011, at Appalachian State University (ASU), in Boone, North Carolina (NC). The program will be offered to NC students in grades 9-12 who have been enrolled in online Russian instruction offered solely via distance learning during the school year (there are 95 of these in all). It is important to bring these students from across the state together in one place and create an immersion environment where they can bond socially, learn more Russian, and put their language skills to use. The theme of the Institute is Discover the World of Russian Fairy Tales. In-class and out-of-class activities will center around this theme and connect it with the art and music of Russian culture. Also, this summer institute will offer an intermediate level of Russian for heritage speakers, because this is the largest population of students currently enrolled in the online Russian program in North Carolina. By offering this level in an immersion environment on campus, we can accommodate students who have taken Russian online and further develop their oral and written skills.
