The expertise and experience of Instructors, together with a low student-teacher ratio, will guarantee the high quality of the YingHua Startalk Practicum Program since veteran YingHua-Startalk Instructors are committed to being in support of 2021 program and the YHIS program collaborates with a number of STARTALK programs nationwide to share resources to continuously improve our curriculum which was highly applauded by the official STARTALK site visitors. We at YHIS, through our 2019 YHIS Student Program where we provided trainees the venue to practice their learning and after witnessing how beneficial it is to provide STARTALK teachers in training to have enough actual teaching experiences as they put into practice the concepts and theory they learned like STARTALK Principles, World-Readiness Standards, ACTFL Can-Do statements, TELL Project and how to design, write, implement and receive constructive feedback and adjust their teaching style in order to make it a truly effective, we are inspired once again to make it bigger and officially bring this program to the next level because our program is designed to provide utmost real-life teaching and learning life-long experience to both teachers and students participants to believe in the STARTALK mission supported by the NSA.
