    'Instituto Technico Vocaciona Franz Tamayo' in Nucleoñata is a small school on the suburbs of Cochabamba, Bolivia. Many of its young students come from indigenous Quechua families, that are the majority of Cochabambinos. I had an opportunity to visit this school with the students of San Simon University in Cochabamba and their Quechua language teacher, who were going to perform Quechua tales, as a part of their final assignment. Quechua is It is the most widely spoken language family of the indigenous peoples of the Americas, with a total of probably some 8 to 10 million speakers. At the time of the conquest, the Incans referred to their language as' runasimi', only later to be called quechua by conquistadors. Today, Quechua has the status of an official language in Bolivia and Peru, along with Spanish. The project was very successful and was revived by children (and employes of school) with a great interest. Actually, only the appearance of group of 'strangers' cased a huge stir and great joy amongst young pupils of Franz Tamayo school, which is the best visible on photographs! It was amazing day to remember for everybody:) Read Less
