"K-talk! Seoul to Soul" is a dynamic STARTALK Korean Language Summer Program designed to immerse students in the rich culture and language of Korea through 21st century teaching and learning. Through a virtual exploration using Google, students will engage in a living history of Seoul, re-enacting the past and examining its influence on the present. Real-world experiences in Korean arts and crafts, music, dance, Tae Kwon Do, and food preparation and tasting will bring culture, content, and language to life. E-portfolios, student-created blogs, and interactive exhibitions will highlight students' success. To promote a deep and continuing appreciation for the Korean culture, post-program activities include the 2019 Lunar New Year Celebration at the Korea Society of NYC, the 2018 NYC Korean Parade, as well as two complimentary tickets to the 2019 International Festival at Francis Lewis High School. To support on-going Korean language development, free Rosetta Stone accounts (one per household) will be offered to students' families for the 2018-19 academic year. Aligned to the World-Readiness Standards, the five-week intensive program will be offered Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., July 9, 2018 to August 10, 2018. Space is limited to 30 novice (beginner) participants. Apply by May 31, 2018.
