Why teach Quechua as it is spoken in Ecuador? I thought Quechua speakers were primarily located in Peru and Bolivia (where Quechua is an official language). The most important places of the Inca civilization are located in Peru as well. So I wonder...
And I know this is a bit off-topic, but do you happen to know of any resources for learning the Mayan language? (Yucatec Maya seems to be the largest dialect spoken nowadays).
And to answer the question:
He'le, kin kanik hump'iit maya taan.
There are a number of resources about Yucatec Mayan. A good introductory guide would be Maya: For Travellers and Students (Bevington) and Spoken Yucatec Maya (Robert W. Blair and Refugio Vermont Salas) with tapes! This series isn't as strong as it could be, but was originally based on materials produced by the University of Chicago, but were revamped between 2000-2004 at UNC-Chapel Hill. These newer editions are 100% improved over the older versions. Hope that helps! If there's a lot of interest, a thread should be opened up in the VSL[/size]
