Chinese summer camps proliferating in Utah

We announced a few weeks back that the University of Utah’s Confucius Institute is organizing a Chinese language summer camp, possibly this year. We will have more details in the next week, or two.

But here’s another opportunity to keep your kids’ Mandarin skills fresh over the long, hot summer months:

Utah’s Chinese Immersion Program director Sandy Talbot won a STARTALK grant this year that will enable school districts to sponsor a summer reading program for kids currently enrolled in the 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades.

School districts will announce details soon. But here’s a sneak peek.

The program will kick off sometime in June with a week-long Mandarin storytelling festival. Enrollment will be limited. But…here’s the good part….teachers will record the books and make the recordings, along with the books, available online for everyone for free.

Stay tuned for more.
