The StarTalk: Queens University of Charlotte Summer Institute in Chinese and Arabic is a three-week, 105 hour non-residential program for rising 9th graders through recently graduated 12th graders that takes place from July 6th to July 24th from 8:30AM to 3:30PM with lunch and snack provided. Undergraduate credit (3 hours) may be granted upon program completion, at which point students will demonstrate proficiency in Mandarin or Arabic at the beginning, intermediate or advanced level with a focus on real-world communication skills. Using a variety of authentic materials and supporting technologies - such as Skype conversations with native-speaking tutors abroad - students will engage in culturally significant communicative activities in an immersion setting in class, in the community, and online. Sixty-five students will be admitted in a competitive application process including essays and a teacher recommendation. Prior knowledge of Mandarin or Arabic not required. Heritage language learners and advanced students are welcome.
