Kaqchikel Maya Programs
Kaqchikel Study Abroad Opportunities:
The Mayan Language Institute is a six-week intensive language immersion program in Kaqchikel Maya and K’iche’ Maya. Students study with both U.S. faculty and native speakers and participate on cultural activities, lectures, discussions, and excursions.
Students pursuing Kaqchikel Maya will spend six weeks in Antigua and will be responsible for finding their own local lodging accommodations and meals. Classes in Antigua will take place at the Proyecto Lingüístico Francisco Marroquín (PLFM), a language school founded in 1969 whose mission is to teach, investigate, and preserve Mayan languages and culture.
