    Summary

    This 20-day, 80-instructional-hour summer program aims to increase the awareness and interest in Chinese and Korean languages and cultures among the community. The program will also serve as a springboard for the establishment of two-way immersion programs in collaboration with the school district in the next few years. A total of 45 second and third grade non-heritage language learners with no prior experience in Chinese or Korean will be recruited: 30 for the Chinese program and 15 for the Korean program. By the end of the summer program, students are expected to achieve a novice-low level of reading and writing and a novice-mid level of listening and speaking in the target language. They are also expected to develop a sustained interest in the target languages and cultures, continuing their learning in the online program from July to August and in the after-school programs during the academic year.
