    Summary

    Expedition Chinatown is a two week Mandarin Chinese student program, which takes place within a successful existing summer camp, Graham Windham Manhattanville, for 40 inner city students in grades 3rd to 4th and 6th to 8th. The student program will provide a novice level entry point into the acquisition of Chinese focused on linguistic functions that express desires and preferences for transportation, food and souvenirs. The 20 hours of instructional activities will be focused on achievable novice mid to novice high goals for elementary and middle school students, with the culminating objective being a visit to Chinatown where students will interact with native speakers. This student program will be run concurrently with Global Language Project’s teacher program, and is the natural evolution of our previous partnership with the camp as a site for micro-teaching. Under the guidance of lead instructors, camp staff will implement a program that incorporates STARTALK best practices for the benefit of the campers and teacher program participants who will be micro-teaching in the camp during the second week of the program.
