The YingHua-Startalk Practicum Program for students, will teach Mandarin language and culture to 40 students, in grades 2 to 10th, with diverse socio-economic, ethnic, and linguistic backgrounds and various proficiency levels ranging from beginner level to Intermediate High. Student participants will be engaged in 1-week of pre-program online learning and 3 weeks of face-to-face instruction, with field trip that are standards-aligned, science-oriented, culturally-enriching, and fully-immersed with theme based learning opportunities. Student participants can choose to remain engaged with the vibrant learning community that is YingHua International School through our Full time enrollment, Afternoon Education Programs and/or Summer Camp and like last year, we will implement a carefully planned marketing scheme to give special attention to the underprivileged areas such as Franklin Park, Somerset, NJ, to ensure that students who have not been exposed to Chinese learning, who are outside of the community-based weekend language schools and well funded high school language programs, are able to benefit from the Startalk program. The expertise and experience of Instructors, together with a low student-teacher ratio, will guarantee the high quality of YingHua Startalk Practicum Program since veteran YingHua-Startalk Instructors are committed to be in support of 2020 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.
