We were thrilled today to have our students back for the first two days of class here our Chinese and Russian STARTALK Academies. Students met their teachers and got familiar with the school building, and in the last two days have learned basic language skills like:
In addition, Russian students had their first traditional dance and movement class, learning the beginnings of the famous Russian folk song, Kalinka!
Chinese students wrote their first Chinese characters in calligraphy in their art class, starting with sun, moon, mountain, fire, and water, and worked today on traditional drawings of bamboo.
On a logistical note, if you would like to receive updates/announcements for this year's program via Remind, you can text @startalkvb to the number 81010, and you'll receive text messaged updates when we have important info to get to you.
We're looking forward to many more wonderful days of learning and exploration here at STARTALK!
