Description

Quechua is the linguistic identity of Runa Simi (language of people) and is spoken by 10 million people throughout the Andes. It is the most widely spoken language in the Andes after Spanish, but Quechua is not just a language. It is a linguistic family that varies from one region to another, from Argentina to Colombia. Scholars of this language consider Quechua the only language in the world that is neither individualistic nor egocentric in its ideology and philosophy, but encompasses the other, the collective. It is believed that this aspect of Quechua is what has sparked worldwide interest in studying this native language.

In this course, you’ll have the opportunity to study Quechua online and in person in the city of Cuzco, the cradle of Quechua culture and language in Peru. Gain a deep understanding of the language and culture, as well as the Andean indigenous peoples’ way of seeing the world. In Peru, you will experience an excursion through the Sacred Valley of the Incas; explore archeological sites such as Ollantayambo; meet members of an indigenous community working with traditional textiles; and visit Machu Picchu.
