UMASS Boston STARTALK Mandarin Summer Camp

Chinese
  • July 6, 2015July 24, 2015: Program segment (face-to-face)
  • Bentley University, Waltham, MA

The 15-day, intensive Mandarin Language Summer Camp is open to Massachusetts students in grades 6-12. Four levels of Chinese language classes led by experienced instructors will be held at Bentley University, Waltham, MA. The language curriculum will focus on the theme “My Past, Present and Future in Mandarin” to build on students’ everyday knowledge, daily experience, and individual interests. The summer language courses will prepare students to converse about school life, compare their schedules and activities, and prepare for future studies in the U.S. and in China. Sub-themes will provide vocabulary, dialogue topics and group and independent projects that will enable students to learn quickly and at an appropriate level, while the camp-wide theme will facilitate students speaking Mandarin to each other and with native speakers. The language content is complimented by “electives” such as Chinese art, dance, skits and performances; food, games, and ping pong. A series of language-exchange meetings with high school students from Beijing will provide opportunity to converse and participate in school and language-based activities (without having to travel to China). The exchange of language combined with creative cultural activities is intended to get students to start-talking and promote motivation to become life-long learners of Mandarin.
