•Pre and post-course testing assess progress toward the performance goals set forth in USDE IRIS testing instruments.

 

This course introduces graduate students to the Kichwa language and moves them toward fluency as quickly as possible.  Exercises are geared to teach the performative language skills needed to carry out research or other kinds of work with Kichwa communities. Throughout the course, Kichwa language is used as a window into Kichwa culture and worldview.  Because the graduate students taking the course tend to be highly motivated but at varying levels of competence an effort is made to individualize instruction often tailoring language instruction to the research topic or needs of the student.  The study of Kichwa songs and videotaped oral literature will help to keep things lively.
