LANGUP project

Live a new life with a new language


Help preserve near extinct languages with Lang Up 

Our aim is simple. It is to keep as many languages from going extinct. To do this we are trying to educate as many people as we can, so that the more people that know, the less likely these languages are to die out. We have provided links to websites that can hopefully teach everyone more about what they don’t know. We have provided history to countries and their cultures, we have provided the names of the languages that are dying out. These languages are a piece of history that are dying out and we need to preserve them so that we don’t lose these little pieces of human culture.


Quotes from the LANGUP people working to promote their language and culture:

“In LANGUP we work to spread and reaffirm minority languages around the world. We seek and intend that more is spoken in these languages and that they are used in both public and private spaces. And those who speak them should work using their original languages.”

“To recognize the presence of the Afro-Peruvian ethnolecto is to recognize a Spaniard who was destined to disappear due to the process of enslavement and colonization. Talking about our Afroperuvianness is a way of showing resistance and respect to our ancestors.”

Angie Campos and Andrea Ortiz, Peru

“People that wish to learn about Minderico and other endangered languages can use our e-learning platform to help you become leaders in your community and in your work.”
