QUERY> Intensive Classical Tibetan

Dear colleagues,

My PhD student wishes to take an intensive summer course in Classical Tibetan. She found the course at the Rangjung Yeshe Institute (https://ryi.org/programs/degree-programs/summer-intensives/classical-tibetan). Do you have any comments about this course? Do you know of similar intensive courses elsewhere? What would you recommend?

Any and all thoughts and suggestions appreciated.

Many thanks! Best,
