    Summary

    YingHua Startalk Student Program is a Mandarin Chinese and Chinese culture program good for 36 incoming 3rd to 9th grade students, with diverse socioeconomic, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds and various Chinese proficiency levels ranging from Novice Low to Intermediate mid. Student participants will be actively engaged in 3 weeks of face-to-face, standards-aligned, science-oriented, culturally-enriching, and fully-immersed and theme-based learning opportunities, followed by 8 weeks of twice-weekly meetings after school, and 4 months of online learning. Beyond the Program, student participants can choose to remain engaged with the vibrant learning community from YingHua International School. Special marketing attention will be focused on the underprivileged areas such as Franklin Park, Somerset, NJ, to ensure that students who have not been exposed to Chinese learning, who are outside of community-based weekend language schools and well-funded high school language programs, are able to benefit from the Startalk program. Strong pedagogical leadership, well-crafted curricular design, the expertise and experience of teachers, together with a low student-teacher ratio, will guarantee the high quality of YingHua Startalk Student Program.
