IACs StarTalk Urdu Summer Camp 2019
K-2, 3-5, 6-8
- June 10, 2019 – June 28, 2019: (Face-to-face)
- ILM Academy, Houston, TX
We typically receive upwards of 100 or 150 student requests for every StarTalk program due to our regular year long weekend Urdu classes, and Indus Arts Council's promotion of Pakistani arts, culture and languages in Houston and beyond.
We have settled on a target number of 50 students as a reasonable goal, given our desire is to have a large enough program to demonstrate that there is a significant demand for Urdu in our area and formally pursuing Urdu instruction collectively is a worthwhile and attainable goal.
The proficiency level for our students is Novice mid to Intermediate low. The program is 3 weeks long with 90 instructional hours.
Currently with four instructors and four junior instructors, we will be able to offer four sections of Urdu instruction in which the average class size will be 12 to 13 students and the teacher-to student ratio (including junior instructors, who will be actively involved in instruction) will be approximately 1 to 6.
This class size will offer students a quality learning experience and the potential to develop a sense of community and belonging with their peers. Participants will also take part in theater (performed in Urdu) and take part in music/songs in Urdu to a live audience.
