Intensive Hindi-Urdu Language Program for High School Students

From http://cas.colorado.edu/index.php/ssewa/Startalk

The South, Southeast and West Asia Outreach Program (SSEWA) at the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU), will host its first STARTALK student program from June 4 to July 6, 2012, in collaboration with the Anderson Language Technology Center (ALTEC) and the Department of Asian Languages and Civilizations (ALC). The primary goal of the program is to provide Hindi/Urdu language learning experience and encourage development of cross-cultural communication skills. The program consists of three-weeks of on-site (June 4-22) and two-weeks of online sessions (June 25 to July 6). Enrollment is limited to 20 high school students who will be entering grades 9 through 12 in public and private schools in the Boulder-Denver area in the summer of 2012. Students must be able to commute daily to the on-site portions of the program. Instructors who specialize in teaching Hindi, CU faculty experts on South Asia, and other invited guest speakers will provide the students with training to achieve a novice-high level of fluency in Hindi. Prior knowledge of Hindi is not required. All major costs associated with the program are underwritten by STARTALK.

Applications are due April 27, 2012.
