This program offers a fifteen-day residential Chinese language summer camp for 30 current 8th to 12th graders from Arizona to explore and expand their knowledge in Chinese language and culture. The 30 students are placed into different classes based on their proficiency levels. During the camp, students live on the ASU Tempe campus where they spend their day participating in intensive language classes as as well as fun, hands-on cultural activities. Evenings and weekends are also packed with activities that are geared toward both learning and entertainment. By the end of the program, these learners are not only able to use Chinese to perform basic tasks in everyday life but also to acquire valuable knowledge on Chinese culture as well. The program boasts a living-learning setting, where participants can also gain first-hand college life experience on the ASU Tempe campus. All evening activities are monitored and supervised by mature resident advisors who reside in the residence hall with students.
