The STARTALK Korean Language Program at Mercy College, “STARTALK: A Student Life in Seoul,” will advance students’ Korean language competency to novice-mid or novice-high level, depending on their level at program entrance. We will recruit and select 30 students in grades 6-8 with diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, including students returning from the previous year’s program. Through both virtual and face-to-face teaching and learning experiences, the students will explore Korean family life, school life, and cultural activities aligned to the World Readiness Standards. The students will have opportunities to create digital stories to present their learning outcomes in the STARTALK program. The program will be offered Monday - Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., July 30 to August 17, 2018, for a total of 90 hours of instructional time.
