    Summary

    HEB ISD’s Startalk "Around the World in 12 Days" language academy will provide 3 weeks and 72 hours of student-centered learning and instruction in Hindi, Arabic, or Chinese to rising 7th graders, and intermediate level practice for 8th-11th grade students. Projected enrollment for Arabic, Hindi, and Chinese will be 50 students- 25 7th graders, and 25 intermediate students. At the end of this academy, we expect students to achieve novice level oral proficiency in their language of choice (rising 7th graders) and intermediate low-mid (upper grades). We anticipate that approximately 90% of our 7th grade students will continue in the language course in the fall at our district. For intermediate students, we expect their grades on the IB exams to reflect the benefits of additional language practice.
