The Intensive Abroad Program is an intensive six-week training in Khmer language-culture held in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The program is administered by Khmer Language Program at the University of Hawai'i, and in collaboration with the Royal University of Phnom-Penh, Cambodia. 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.

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 USA.
