Subject: Quechua en UPenn
*Elementary Quechua I and II will be offered at The University  of
Pennsylvania in Summer  1998.*  These courses are open to graduate
students, advanced undergraduates, professionals and other interested
individuals.  They will be taught by Serafin Coronel-Molina, a native
speaker of Quechua, using a combination of traditional and multimedia
texts.  The course has been developed in close consultation with Dr.
Nancy H. Hornberger of the Graduate School of Education at the University of
Elementary Quechua I (LING 140 for undergraduates; LING 508 for
graduates) will be offered in the first summer session (May 19 to June
26, 1998), and will meet five days a week from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.
Elementary Quechua II (LING 141 for undergraduates; LING 509 for
graduates) will be offered in the second summer session (June 29 to
August 7, 1998), and will also meet five days a week from 10:00 am to
12:00 noon.
Elementary Quechua I is intended for students with no previous study
experience in Quechua.  It introduces students to the language and
culture of the Quechua people.  This is the language that was spoken by
the ancient Incas and is still spoken today by more than 10 million
speakers throughout the Andean countries of South America. The variety
taught will be from the Southern Quechua family spoken in Peru. The
course will promote the development of the four language skills:
speaking, listening, reading and writing, providing a good practical
command of oral and written skills appropriate for everyday situations.
In addition, classwork will include discussion of native Andean culture,
as well as the changing face of Quechua culture in light of recent
migration trends.
Elementary Quechua II is a continuation of Elementary Quechua I for
students who have taken the first session course or who have previously
studied Southern Peruvian Quechua at the beginning level.  The format
will be the same as for Elementary Quechua I, with continued building of
the four essential language skills:  speaking, listening, reading and
writing.  Grammatical structures will be continually reviewed throughout
this course, while a rich input of material in Quechua is provided with
the goal of increasing the range of vocabulary and linguistic structures
as well as knowledge of the culture.
