We will be making an announcement shortly about plans for 2014.
STARTALK is a national, federally funded program designed to expand and improve both student learning and teacher training in strategically important world languages in the U.S.
STARTALK programs are designed to get students to Start Talking these languages. Arabic is one of the most important!
"The STARTALK Arabic camp was the best thing our daughter has done. We are looking forward to continuing with her Arabic as well as a trip to the Middle East to 'practice'. Thank you for exposing her to such a life changing experience. She is looking forward to returning to camp next summer."
We do not have a regular STARTALK camp this year, but plan to resume next year (pending funding).
However, we will be holding a camp for students who have completed the first year of Arabic. This will take place from July 14 to Aug. 1. Students will stay in housing
near the BYU campus supervised 24-7 by BYU TAs. Belal Joundeya will be the lead teacher. Cost (with high school credit) is $950. Please write mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested or have questions.
*Please note: This camp is not affiliated with BYU Conferences & Workshops.
For those with no prior Arabic and who would like to get going, please consider our online course http://nmelrc.org/how-register-arabic-without-walls-0 which includes live tutor support and interaction with other learners.
