The NU Chinese STARTALK Program will offer a blended, 5-week non-residential language and culture program to 20 high school students. A total of 100 instructional hours will be provided at the Northeastern University, Boston campus. Face-to-face class sessions will be supplemented with online learning sessions, providing students opportunities to learn at their own pace and receive personalized instruction. The standards-based and student-centered curriculum will be guided by the theme “Travel with Zenbo Jr.,” which aims to develop students’ linguistic and intercultural competence through experiential learning with native speakers and immersion in Chinese cultural activities. Upon conclusion of this program, students will be expected to have an ACTFL Novice-Mid/High proficiency level in speaking, reading, writing, and listening.
