Course

Beginners Quechua Course | Non-Credit Open to the Public

Join us for this month-long intensive to learn the most widely spoken indigenous language in the Americas! Quechua has been spoken in Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Argentina, and Chile since the 16th century. In this course, you’ll learn to speak the variant from Cusco, Peru, which allows you to read the first documents written in this language. Depending on students’ interests, the class could also include Kichwa, spoken in Ecuador. At the end of the class you will be familiar with present, past, and future tense. In addition to grammar, you will learn about the relationship between Andean culture and language.

This class is great for heritage speakers, language enthusiasts, civil servants, public health workers, UN and embassy workers, teachers, journalists, and more.
