    Summary

    HEB ISD’s Startalk "Around the World in 12 Days" language academy will provide 3 weeks and 72 hours of student-centered learning and instruction in Hindi, Arabic, or Chinese to rising 7th graders, and intermediate level practice for 8th-11th grade students. Projected enrollment for Arabic, Hindi, and Chinese will be 50 students- 25 7th graders, and 25 intermediate students. At the end of this academy, we expect students to achieve novice level oral proficiency in their language of choice (rising 7th graders) and intermediate low-mid (upper grades). We anticipate that approximately 90% of our 7th grade students will continue in the language course in the fall at our district. For intermediate students, we expect their grades on the IB exams to reflect the benefits of additional language practice.

    Summary

    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.
