Dear Listeros:

Please note the following addition to a previous note re: a summer
Nahuatl immersion course in Oapan, Guerrero:

During academic year 2004-05, Jonathan Amith will teach a year-long
intensive sequence in Nahuatl at the University of Chicago. Emphasis
is placed on the diversity of Nahuatl in order to prepare students for
work in a wide range of contexts. Proficiency-based instruction
incorporates language tapes, on-line resources, and native-speakers as
guest lecturers. Sudents will be given the option of registering for
beginning or intermediate level instruction. However, students
interested in the intermediate level must first complete the Yale
Summer Intensive Nahuatl Institute or otherwise demonstrate an
intermediate level of knowledge in Nahuatl. Both the Summer Institute
at Yale and the Academic Year program at University of Chicago are
FLAS-eligible. The University of Chicago invites students who have or
will be able to obtain an academic year FLAS for learning Nahuatl to
spend the year 2004-5 at the University of Chicago. Please contact
Josh Beck (jpbeck at for further information.
