intensive Hausa course

Notice: I am looking for people interested in taking an intensive Hausa course this summer/fall. I want to learn the basics of the language in order to be able to do fieldwork later.
It seems that it would be possible to have such a course organized at several places in Niger/Nigeria but - as far as I know - there is no group of students going to any of those places. Would there be anyone interested in joining such a course? Or would anyone know of a course that is already being organized this year?
