Autumn 2019 Quechua 5501.01, Beginning Quechua I

No course prerequisites.

Quechua, the primary language family of the ancient Incas, is spoken by approximately ten million people in the Andes and highlands of South America, primarily in Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. Quechua language courses are of special interest to students who want to learn about the Quechua language, culture, and society; who are pursuing the interdisciplinary minor in Andean and Amazonian Studies; or who are working in areas such as Anthropology, Linguistics, Archeology, Spanish, History, International Studies, Political Science, Geography, and many other disciplines!


The purpose of this site is to provide a central platform containing information about the Quechua Language Program and Learning Community at The Ohio State University. Here you will find material with linguistic and cultural importance concerning the Quechua language and the Andes region of South America, links to resources that are tied to the study of Quechua and the areas where it is spoken, as well as testimonials of those who have studied the language and traveled to/worked in Quechua-speaking countries. Current and prospective students of our Language Program will also be able to find information for courses, study abroad, scholarships/fellowships, and other external, related resources.
