Summer Language Camps Provide Global Perspective for Students
This summer Duquesne University will host a series of summer language camps for kids in kindergarten through eighth grade. Students can select camps that specialize in Spanish, Italian, German, French or Japanese. The camps will focus on the study of a language, but also will include an exploration of culture through food, music, arts and crafts.
“It is never too early to educate citizens of the world and build bridges across other cultures,” explains Dr. Edith Krause, chair of the Department of Modern Languages and Literature at Duquesne.
“At Duquesne University we take pride in our efforts to promote world community.”
The camps, which each have a $100 fee, will run according to the following schedule:
Spanish: June 20-24, 10 a.m. to Noon
German: June 20-24, 1 to 3 p.m.
Italian: June 27-July 1, 10 a.m. to Noon
French: June 27-July 1, 2 to 4 p.m.
