Our Beginning and Intermediate Quechua classes are offered three times a year, starting in January, May, and September.  Advanced classes are offered when we have enough interested and qualified students. Unless otherwise noted, our classes focus on Quechua Chanka, a dialect of Southern Quechua spoken in Apurimac, Ayacucho, Huancavelica, and Arequipa. We also offer charango classes. All courses are conducted on Zoom. Registration is through Eventbrite. 


12 weeks, $200

This course requires no previous knowledge of Quechua and no textbooks. It does require a good internet connection, a microphone and webcam, motivation, and a willingness to speak out loud in an immersive setting (we will start speaking from day one!). The course covers:

Asking open and closed questions

Expressing possession (having something)

Expressing various actions

By the end of the course, students will be able to ask and answer such questions as: "How are you?" "Where do you live?" "Where are you from?" "Do you have children?" "What do you study?" "Where do you work?" "Is this food spicy?"

After this, you'll be able to join our Intermediate course!


12 weeks, $200

This course is for people who have taken our Beginning Quechua class or have a good foundation of basic Quechua as described above (asking open and closed questions, etc.). This course covers four or five chapters of Quechua Cusqueño, Year Two.  Different chapters are covered each time it is taught, so you can take this course multiple times.
