The Center for Latin America and Caribbean Studies offers a comprehensive language program featuring beginning, intermediate, and advanced Quechua language. Quechua was the language of the Inca Empire, and under Spanish colonial rule became the lingua franca of the Andes. Today it is the most widely spoken indigenous language of the Americas, with some 10 million speakers in Bolivia, Perú, Ecuador, Colombia, Chile, and Argentina.
