StarTalk - ESHA Heritage Camps


ESHA has received Federal STARTalk program Grants administered by the
National Foreign Language Center of University of Maryland for teaching Hindi
and India's culture 
during summer 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014,  2015 and 2016.
Camps were held in an Intensive Language Learning setting and attended

by 90 to 100 students, grades 3 to 10,  for three weeks each summer

in a large, air conditioned, Middle School in Marlboro, NJ.

Experienced professionals are engaged to teach Hindi  as well as Yoga, music, 
Arts & Crafts. A media lab is set up so students can learn using software apps.
Teachers receive a week long Professional Development Training  
and prepare detailed lesson plans before each summer camp. The linked documents (see below) provide further details about each camp.

     at the 2016 IEEE Integrated STEM Education Conference (ISEC) on March 5, 2016 at Princeton University, Princeton, NJ. 


     If you know more than one language start celebrating :


-  being bilingual is good for your brain whilst learning

 the language of your forebears has benefits for both 
 mind and soul.


   Bilingualism and multilingualism has been shown 

to have emotional and cognitive benefits

   Research shows that knowing more than one language
delays Alzheimer's 
and dementia onset, and improves 
mental function more generally. 

   But there might well be other significant mental health

benefits, which are currently being explored by researchers. 
And anecdotally, some people claim 
learning a language 

helped them manage their depression and see beyond
 their immediate world.
