We are very proud of the quality of our teaching staff – We make sure that each professor has been trained to the best teaching techniques in language instruction. Our classes focus on communication in real situations, face to face interactions, supported by audiovisual and web-based media. We pursue the general acquisition and integration of language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing).

Quechua was the language of the Incas, and is still spoken by the indigenous populations of the Andes. Today, only in Peru, an estimated 10 million people speak Quechua as a first language, and it is also spoken in Bolivia and parts of Ecuador.
In order to take Quechua classes, it is indispensable to have at least an intermediate level of Spanish, as all the grammatical specificities are explained in Spanish.
If you chose to be housed in a homestay, you will be staying in families who have Quechua-speaking members. You will be able to share the life of those families where you will be able to practice your linguistic skills.
