Every other year, CLAS offers a three-course summer intensive sequence in Aymara. This is the only course in Aymara offered in the US.
With support from a US Department of Education National Resource Center grant, the Aymara Summer Institute has been offered biannually since 1995 under the direction of course instructor Miguel Huanca, author of the text Aymar Arux Akhamawa, the only Aymara-English textbook available.+
