The 2015 STARTALK Chinese Language Camp at the University of Hawaii will enroll 20 students between the ages of 12 and 17 with limited or no previous exposure to Chinese. The integrated 3-week residential program combines TBLT (task-based language teaching) and TPRS (teaching proficiency through reading & storytelling) approaches to listening, speaking, reading, and writing Chinese; language instruction through technology and media; STEM-oriented and cultural classes conducted in the target language; instruction in Chinese martial arts; Chinese language training via improvisational theatre; and experiential activities conducted in the local environment. It is led by four nationally known key instructors, a talented STARTALK-Hawaii alumnus teacher, four Confucius Institute teachers who are STARTALK-Hawaii alumni, and at least 10 highly motivated teacher-trainees from the concurrent Teacher Training Institute. Students will be exposed to an energized/energizing program in Mandarin Chinese that will not only teach them culturally appropriate language basics in all four skills, but will motivate them to seek out language-learning and -using opportunities long after camp is over.
