>Aymara is an indigenous language of the Andean region of Bolivia, Peru,
>Chile and Argentina. Approximately four million people in the region
>consider Aymara to be their native language, including over one-third of
>the population of Bolivia, making it one of the most widely-spoken
>indigenous languages in South America. For over a decade, the University of
>Chicago has been the only institution to offer regular Aymara instruction,
>supported with funding from US Department of Education Title VI National
>Resource Center grants. Aymar Arux Akhamawa is the only English-Aymara
>textbook available. This valuable resource is now made available at no cost
>for self-guided language learning via the world wide web, complete with
>digitally-recorded native-spoken dialogues, vocabulary supplements,
>original literature, and traditional song. The on-line publication of this
>text can be found on the Center's website at
>http://clas.uchicago.edu/thematic/aymara. This is the second edition of the
>text developed by Miguel Huanca, who has taught 26 students in Aymara at
>the University of Chicago since 1994 through the biannual Aymara Summer
>Intensive Institute (http://clas.uchicago.edu/thematic/aymara/).  The
>Summer Institute will next be offered in 2005. For more information about
>Aymara instruction at the University of Chicago Center for Latin American
