General Information

Now in its 11th year, BYU STARTALK Chinese 2017 is an exceptional opportunity for high school students to immerse themselves in learning Chinese. This intensive three-week residential camp offers students an "immersion" environment where they put into instant use the Chinese they learn each day-in class, in activities and at mealtimes. BYU has one of the most highly respected STARTALK programs in the nation, and students often choose to return in following years.
