Winston-Salem State University’s STARTALK, an intensive scholarship-based Chinese language program for high school and college students, will be offered July 7-26.
Students and parents can learn more about the program and the application process at an information session at WSSU's campus. The program is offered for the first time in the Piedmont Triad.
WSSU’s Department of World Languages and Culture received a $78,579 federal grant to offer the nonresidential program for up to 30 students. College students who complete the program will receive 3 credit hours.
The Chinese STARTALK program will be taught by an experienced team in an immersive way to integrate culture, content and language in the classroom. The theme for the program is Food and Wellness. No prior Chinese language experience is necessary.
STARTALK is funded by the National Security Agency and administered by the National Foreign Language Center at the University of Maryland.
