The 2009 OneWorld Now! (OWN) Chinese Summer Language Camp will take place Aug. 3–21, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekdays at Seattle University. The program is open to incoming ninth through twelfth grade students in the Seattle area with a focus on serving minority and low-income applicants.
Students from outside the area are welcome to apply and attend if they are able to arrange their own housing, transportation, and meals. The summer camp is free for accepted students, thanks to STARTALK scholarships. Students are encouraged to register early to secure a scholarship.
The OWN Summer Language Camp will include two levels of Mandarin Chinese instruction (Level 1 for students with little or no knowledge of the language and Level 2 for students who have studied the language for at least one year).
During the camp, students will learn and develop their writing, reading, listening, and speaking skills, while also gaining exposure to the products, practices, and perspectives of Chinese culture. ♦
