Learn Quechua in Peru


Scenery in Peru

In Peru, you have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the fascinating Peruvian culture on one of our Quechua Language Courses. Quechua is an official language in Peru - Quechua and Spanish are now heavily intermixed, with many hundreds of Spanish cognates in Quechua.

With accommodation in Cusco in the home of a local family, you'll learn quickly and can practise what you've learned with your hosts each day. Lessons are with a qualified language teacher, are tailored to your personal level, and can be adapted to your interests.

There are two options when it comes to learning Quechua in Peru. You can choose to take part in an intensive standalone Language Course, where you will receive around 15 hours of tuition per week.

After completing your Quechua Language Course, you can also choose to spend time working on one of our Peru volunteer projects, such as Teaching or Care, and put your newly acquired language skills to use in a practical working environment.

Alternatively, you can choose to sign up for our 5-hour, 14-hour, or 30-hour Language Course add-ons, which run alongside your main volunteer project. These prices are in addition to your main project price. Please take a look at our Peru language prices for more information.

Please note that Language Courses in Peru cannot be combined with the Conservation Project.
