WHAT PAST STARTALK PARTICIPANTS SAID
“This year at Startalk has been really fun for me. I remember doing lots of fun things like doing kung fu in the morning, to playing ping pong in the afternoon. I loved meeting new people every day and still keep in touch with lots of them. Learning Chinese in class was fun too, we learned differently and played some games revolving around the language.”
“Over the course of the last two weeks at the Startalk 2012 program I had many great times. I enjoyed meeting new people from all over, as well as learning Mandarin... I had many good memories at Startalk, and there will stay with me.”
"After participating in the Startalk program, I have learned not only the Chinese language but also the rich culture that makes up China... Startalk is an exceptional program that has taught me the foundations of the Chinese language and I hope to come back next year and learn even more."
