Welcome to the STARTALK Arabic, Chinese, Dari, Persian Student Camps at San Diego State University!

Language Acquisition Resource Center (LARC) at San Diego State University (SDSU) will offer a four-week Arabic, Chinese, Dari, and Persian STARTALK summer program for 10 non-heritage students in each camp (total of 40 students) from July 9th to August 3rd, 2018. These programs will be open to students in grades 9-12 with no prior knowledge of the language. Upon successful completion, the students are awarded with four units of undergraduate college credit through the SDSU College of Extended Studies.
