Hello! I’m a graduate student working on my masters thesis. I have studied Quechua at NYU and Kichwa at UCLA many years ago. I’m really fascinated by the study of Quechua/Kichwa as a second/heritage language in the United States, so I decided to write my thesis on this topic. I’m particularly interested in looking at why people want to learn Quechua/Kichwa in the US and how they choose to do so. I’m interviewing Quechua/Kichwa professors and also gathering survey responses from people actively learning the languages or who want to learn the languages.
I hope it’s okay to share a link to my survey on here. If you would like to participate, please visit this link: https://goo.gl/forms/D4kvECdUwmgiQ1XB2. I really appreciate your help in developing a more comprehensive understanding of the role of Quechua/Kichwa in the US.
Yupaychani (thank you), Sandy
