Quechua is most widely spoken native language in the Andes and the official language of the old Inca empire.
In South America about 10 million people speak Quechua, the majority living in Peru. In Peru Quechua is an official language. There is a variety in dialects, but the Quechua spoken in Cusco is the most important. We teach Quechua in Cusco, “Qosqo” in Quechua in our language institute. Until today a lot of people speak Quechua in the region of Cusco. In Cusco and the other bigger cities of Peru Spanish is the dominant language. But if you are going to work, volunteer work or travel on the countryside of Peru it can be very useful to speak Quechua.
We offer a Quechua course with a private teacher. This is possible for beginners, but also for advanced speakers. You can take classes by the hour, or take our 15 hour program (3 hours per day). Because every student has its specific reasons and needs to study Quechua, we recommend you to ask us about the possibilities. Also ask us about our possibilities and prices if you are coming in a group. To study Quechua with Proyecto Peru, you´ll need to have at least an intermediate Spanish level as the instruction language in the Quechua classes is Spanish.
