Thank you for your interest in the PDS STARTALK Teacher Training and Student Learning programs!
The PDS STARTALK admin team would like to thank everyone for their support of the program over the last two summers. We are so proud of everything PDS STARTALK has already accomplished--more than anything we are proud of the impact the program has had on local Chinese teacher development and increasing students' interest and proficiency in Chinese language and culture right here in Charlotte!
Unfortunately, a variety of changes in our lives this year have impacted our availability this summer, and because of this, we will not be offering the PDS STARTALK Teacher Training nor the PDS STARTALK Chinese Student program for the summer of 2020.
Please stay tuned for news about Summer 2021 programs!
Thank you again for your support, PDS STARTALK
