Summer 2016 Participant
The most rewarding part of the program were the language courses. It is amazing how quickly you can pick up a language if you have a great teacher.

Tasha Rose Messer, Summer 2012 Participant
Learning an indigenous language is more rewarding than I could have ever imagined. Miskitu is more than a language; it's a tool to build relationships with the amazing people around you.

Amanda Kay Swanson, Summer 2013 Participant
The program in Nicaragua is so unique from every other program KU offers. It gives students the opportunity to explore a very different way of living, forcing you to challenge yourself mentally and emotionally. I loved every opportunity we were given to interact with the locals and learn through their stories and experiences.
