    Summary

    OneWorld Now!’s vision is that all young Americans have access to transformative international education. Through our year-round, Seattle-based Global Leadership Program, we integrate critical language learning, leadership training, and study abroad scholarships with a focus on minority and low-income high school youth. Thanks to STARTALK, OWN has offered a three-week Arabic, Chinese, and Korean summer program for each of the last ten years, with follow-on language classes available through the OWN academic yearlong program. In our twelfth year offering the STARTALK summer immersion program, we will hold another three-week-long, non-residential Arabic, Chinese, and Korean language immersion program for non-heritage high school students in Seattle. The program includes 15 six-hour days, for a total of 90 contact hours. The desired outcome of the STARTALK-OWN Summer Language Camp will be to introduce 51 students to Arabic, Korean and Mandarin Chinese, and to motivate them to continue their language and cultural studies.

    Summary

    The STARTALK Student Program, “Russian in the Sky and in Outer Space,” aims to enroll 20 high school and early college Russian heritage students in a four-week intensive STEM-based language program meeting five hours a day for a total of 100 instructional hours. The program intends to increase students’ proficiency in Interpretive Reading, Presentational Speaking, and Presentational Writing. For the Interpersonal Mode, students will increase their linguistic accuracy and sensitivity to cultural norms, e.g., social register and extended linguistic forms not typically encountered in intimate family speech. Students will be able to earn five University of Washington credits by enrolling in RUSS 499 and also have an opportunity to complete language proficiency assessments (AAPPL and ACTFL OPIc and WPT) that high school students may be able to use in order to receive up to four high school competency-based credits, and all students will receive placement results for future study of Russian at the UW.
