The Mandarin Institute in conjunction with STARTALK will offer a FREE Elementary Mandarin Immersion Summer Camp to those students who qualify. Children entering SFUSD’s 1st -5th grade Mandarin immersion program in Fall 2011 are eligible to apply. The camp will not only reinforce what they have learned during the school year, but will also extend their language capabilities and introduce them to a wide array of cultural activities to enable them to retain and expand their Chinese learning.

During each four week session, students will experience Chinese language and culture through a wide variety of traditional activities such as singing, Chinese calligraphy, brush painting, Chinese arts and crafts, drama and/or Chinese Folk music. Language acquisition will come naturally to the students as a result of their participation in these fun, immersion-based activities. More advanced students will be challenged to enhance their language skills through a more intensive level of interaction with their teachers and other students.
