dc.description Consultant report en
dc.description.abstract This report outlines some of my suggestions for folklorists working independently to plan and complete an immersive language study. My perspective is based on a study trip I completed in March 2014 with support from the American Folklore Society Consultancy and Professional Development Program. In the first section of this report, I will summarize my activities as a Spanish language student in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. I will also discuss the relevance of these activities to my work as a public folklorist in the U.S. In the second section, I will identify some considerations that might prove significant for other folklorists planning language immersion travel. Although my experience is limited and specific, I intend for this report to be applicable for any culture worker interested in language acquisition for purposes of community outreach and collaboration. en
