STARTALK is returning to UTEP in 2019, and we’ve had a name change!
From Local to Global (formerly Speak and Connect) is a free summer language immersion camp running from June 3 – June 21 at UTEP. We offer high school students in the El Paso area the opportunity to learn Arabic, Portuguese or Russian. From Local to Global curriculum is presented thematically, allowing students to learn Arabic, Portuguese or Russian in a unique context by creating a rich, authentic Arabic, Brazilian or Russian cultural environment. Selected students will participate in highly interactive and student-centered classes engaging in various cultural activities, such as dancing, cooking, and acting. In addition, students will meet native speakers of the language they are learning through guest speakers and field trips.
