Study Khmer language and culture in Siem Reap, Cambodia.

Khmer Language and Culture, is an intensive eight-week training in Khmer language-culture held in Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, Cambodia over the summer. The program is administered by the Khmer Language Program at the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa (UHM)in collaboration with the Center for Khmer Studies (CKS) in Cambodia and the Institute of Foreign Languages (IFL) at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Cambodia.

This program with homestays in Siem Reap, Cambodia, provides 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.

This program will increase the number of linguistically competent Khmer speaking professionals across the United States and internationally. Also, the program will promote scholarly cooperation and cultural and socio-economic understanding between Cambodia and the U.S.

The program is intended to complement CKS's Khmer Language and Culture Study Program (KLCP) and is structured along similar lines.
