Immersion Language Camps – A great way to learn!

OneWorld Now! is finishing up an exciting 3-week summer immersion camp in Chinese and Arabic for high school students in the Seattle area. Having studied Russian language myself at Middlebury’s Immersion Summer Camp years ago, I know first-hand the value of a total immersion experience. It’s the best way to learn a language (other than traveling to the country where the language is spoken daily). This year, we also have developed a website just for the camp, complete with videos, photos, etc. from the 3-week camp at Seattle University.

There are a lot of great opportunities nationwide to learn critical languages in an immersion environment for all ages.   For younger students, you can go into the woods in Minnesota (Concordia Language Village) to have a great experience.  Otherwise, Startalk summer programs are sprouting up all over the nation.  We sent three of our OneWorld Now! students to Hawaii this summer to learn Chinese in an immersion camp there.   Otherwise, the Middlebury-Monterey Summer Language camps are still probably one of the very the best!
