Kichwa is a variation of Peruvian Quechua. It is the most spoken indigenous language in Ecuador, Peru, and Bolivia. Ecuadorian Kichwa is alive throughout the Andean Highlands and the Amazon. Although there are dialectal variations, it´s is not an obstacle for the different groups to understand and communicate with each other.
If this is a program that interests you, our native-speaking teachers will respond to your needs and questions.
