LAS 351D • Quechua Language and Society in the Andes II
10:00 AM-11:00 AM
This course in Quechua Language and Society in the Andes II is a continuation of the course in Quechua Language and Society in the Andes I. It is intended for students who have taken the first part of the course or who have previous basic knowledge of Quechua at the beginning level. It will be useful for students that want to travel to the Andean countries or who have an interest in studying Quechua language and culture. The format will be the same as in Quechua Language and Society in the Andes I, with a focus on the oral communicative events and continued building of the four essential language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. This provides the student with a good practical command of oral and written skills appropriate for everyday situations, as well as understanding the culture and role of the Quechua-speaking populations in Andean society. A large part of this class will be oral concentration on communicational practice in Quechua based on handouts and other materials. This course is divided into two parts. The first one is practice (two times a week), and the second one is presentation and discussion of specific topics (one time a week). Note: For those who have not taken Quechua Language and Society in the Andes I, you need to contact with the instructor for his consent.
