From June 2-26, the College of Education & Human Development at Texas A&M will offer free programs for children to learn the Chinese & Korean cultures and languages. Held at Pebble Creek Elementary School in College Station, TX, the program is open to incoming third and fourth grade students with no prior experience in Chinese or Korean languages. The program is open to students from any school districts, including private schools.

“We believe the program will be beneficial to the community as it promotes multicultural and global awareness," said Dr. Li-Jen Kuo, program director.

In this program, children will learn the Chinese & Korean cultures and languages through:

  • Fun crafts
  • Hands-on science projects
  • Performing arts
  • Innovative use of technology

Each child will have an iPad to use during the summer program and will be able to check out the iPad if they choose to continue the online program after the face-to-face program in June. This program is funded by a federal grant (STARTALK) awarded to Texas A&M University.

To sign up for the program, please complete this on-line registration form by April 3rd. Parents and guardians of attendees will be notified of the outcome of their registration via email by April 10th.
