CLACS Launches Rimasun – Quechua Language Podcasts

CLACS is bringing Quechua, the ancient indigenous language of over 10 million individuals in the Andean region, one step further into the 21st century.  Rimasun, a Quechua language podcast, is now available free on iTunes.  When you subscribe to the podcast, each installment will be automatically delivered to your iTunes. Through Rimasun on iTunes, you can transfer podcasts to your iPod or other mp3 device, and enjoy Quechua conversations as you travel to work, ride the Subway, or any of your favorite Quechua listening settings.

Take a moment and check out the Rimasun iTunes page. Download, have a listen, and leave us a comment and a rating!  CLACS would love your feedback as we continue to develop this first ever CLACS Quechua podcast series.

More about Rimasun:

In these audio recordings and podcasts, speakers and students of Quechua are invited to share personal narratives about their families, homes, childhood, hobbies and interests. Our presenters are Quechua language teachers, students, native speakers, heritage speakers and second-language speakers. This series is produced by the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (CLACS) at NYU, and made available through the CLACS blog. While Rimasun relies primarily on Cuzqueñan Quechua, as this is the Quechua presently taught in language courses at NYU, we welcome speakers of all Quechua/Kichwa dialects and languages to enjoy and participate in this inclusive series.

Read more about Quechua language learning at NYU on the CLACS website.
