    Program Setting



    The STARTALK: Queens University of Charlotte Summer Institute in Chinese and Arabic is a three-week, 95 hour non-residential language immersion program for rising 9th graders through recently graduated 12th graders that takes place from 9:00AM to 3:00PM July 24th to August 11th with lunch and snack provided. Student-centered learning will occur in an immersion setting using a variety of authentic materials and supporting technologies that will prepare students to engage in culturally significant communicative activities centered around daily one-on-one video chats with conversation coaches abroad as our theme "Global Connections Along the Silk Road” becomes a reality. Learning experiences will help students develop linguistic and cultural competence from the Novice to Intermediate levels and the skills and motivation needed to become lifelong language learners eager to engage in intercultural dialogue. 40 students will be admitted to the Arabic program in a competitive application process that does not require prior knowledge of the language. Undergraduate credit (4 hours) is granted upon program completion. Our 2017 application can be accessed at
