NSA GRANT FUNDS KOREAN LANGUAGE PROGRAM FOR LOCAL HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
This summer, as many as 20 students from across Dane County will be exploring Korean language and culture through the UW-Madison STARTALK Korean Language and Culture Academy. The STARTALK program, an initiative of the National Security Agency and National Foreign Language Center, seeks to increase the number of critical-need foreign language speakers through creative and engaging experiences.
Students selected for STARTALK will spend five weeks on campus, during which they will be immersed in Korean language and culture. Participants will engage in language learning activities, explore traditional and pop culture, and take part in martial arts, cooking, drumming and dance workshops.
