This program provides 2nd and 3rd year Khmer students with a "one-of-a-kind" opportunity to acquire the linguistic foundation necessary to engage in academic research, professional discourse, and cultural immersion with all segments of Khmer society. It consists of a structured academic program of seven hours of task-based language instruction and activities every day, five days a week, in addition, the curriculum includes day-long weekend field trips to outlying areas of Phnom Penh and home-stays with Khmer families..
