We're ReDefining the Summer Experience
This summer, ReDefiners is offering three summer programs, both designed to give your children a competitive advantage through language and cultural enrichment. Through the theme, Global Explorers, participants will develop a deeper understanding of a different language, customs and practices while journeying to a region where one of three languages are spoken; Arabic, Mandarin or Spanish. Students will explore major aspects of the respective culture & region on their global expeditions via virtual and in-house field trips.
ReDefiners STARTALK Arabic Program
ReDefiners STARTALK Mandarin Program
Participants will explore authentic products and practices that relate to traveling to a place in the world where either Arabic or Mandarin are spoken. They will travel to get to know different regions/cities and to investigate significant aspects of the culture or country. Before leaving on the trip, they will learn about the geographical features and climate of the area. They will also practice greetings so that can address people they meet using appropriate register, titles, courtesy expressions , and gestures. They will pack their backpacks with items they must take along on a virtual or local field trip. Once they arrive at their location, they will investigate the area and get to know the people and their customs. At the end of the program students will use their language skills to share with parents what they have learned about their region of study. Each program is a 1/2 Day program. Open to 3-5 grade students.
