Fall classes have begun!


Follow us on Eventbrite

to be notified of the next round of classes in November.


We use Quechua Cusqueño, Year One 

for Grammar-Focused Quechua 101 - 106.

We use the Third Edition (2023), but the Second Edition (2022) is mostly compatible with the Third Edition.

We use Quechua Cusqueño, Year Two for Quechua 201 -204.

The speaking-focused classes do not use a textbook.
