    Summary

    The Washington County School District (WCSD) Startalk Chinese Summer Camp is an opportunity for 60 rising 6th, 7th and 8th graders from nine WCSD schools to join together for an intensive linguistic and cultural experience. The program will include 3 classrooms of 20 students each meeting daily for 6 hours per day for 10 days, 2 meetings of 2 hours each meeting at the school for students and families as a SKYPE night for students to speaker with middle school students in China in real time.

After participating in the camp, students will be able to engage in Intermediate Mid level discourse regarding Chinese arts in China through sub-themes of similarity and differences and cultural awareness.
