Learn Quechua in Bolivia
If you're interested in volunteering in this destination, please contact us first before applying.
Take the opportunity to immerse yourself in the fascinating Bolivian culture on one of our intensive Quechua Language Courses. Quechua is the official language in Bolivia but Spanish has a heavy influence on this local language.
You can learn Quechua through Projects Abroad on an intensive Language Course, where you will receive an average of 15 hours tuition each week. With accommodation in the home of a local family, you will learn quickly and can practice what you've learned with your hosts each day. Lessons are with a qualified language teacher, are tailored to your personal level, and can be adapted to your interests.
After your lessons you will have plenty of time to complete your homework and explore Cochabamba with other volunteers.
Projects Abroad also offers additional projects in Bolivia such as Care, Teaching, and a variety of others. By starting your time in Bolivia on a Quechua Language Course you will certainly benefit if you then choose to continue on another volunteer project. This would then allow you to put your new language skills to use in a practical work setting.
Alternatively you can undertake a shorter 14-hour or 30-hour course in Quechua which runs alongside your main volunteer project. If you are planning to spend at least twelve weeks in Bolivia or Peru you can also choose to take a 60-hour course that will run alongside your main project.
