    Summary

    The STARTALK Student Summer Program in Kansas City offers three-week intensive language and culture learning experience to 60 novice learners from grades 3-8, both true beginners and students with some prior proficiency in Chinese, in greater Kansas City metro area and neighboring rural areas in the state of Missouri. Underserved, marginalized and rural population are encouraged specifically to apply and participate.

    Based on students’ age group, the program will be divided into four sections, two for rising 3rd-5th graders and two for rising 6th-8th graders. To make the classroom activities relevant to students and motivate them in their learning, each section will use a thematic curriculum; the theme for rising 3rd - 5th graders is “What We Know about Chinese New Year”; the theme for rising 6th - 8th graders is “Let’s Plan a Trip to China.”

    Students will attend seven hours of activities daily consisting of three-and-half-hour task-based language learning classes, one-and-half-hour cultural seminar and hands-on activities, half-hour morning Chinese Taichi exercise, half-hour separate group activity, and a one-hour complimentary lunch, for a total of 105 instructional hours for three weeks.

    During our three-week intensive study, students will reach communicative proficiency, exemplifying the four language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) via our standard-based, student-centered, language-immersed and culturally-enriched curricula.

During the program, participants will receive performance-based language instruction, participate in hands-on cultural activities, and apply what they have learned in tasks that simulate future communication in an exchange program. Participants will engage in all communication modes, and improve their language proficiency 1 to 2 sublevels higher.
