Why can't I find classes to learn to speak Mexican ?

I am trying to learn to speak Mexican but I can’t find any books or classes on the language.


  1. Hello,

    Because the real Mexican language is comprised of 63 Amerindian languages are recognized as national languages; these include Nahuatl, Yucatec Maya, Mixtec, Zapotec, Tzeltal Maya, Tzotzil Maya and Otomi. It is estimated 5.7% of the population speaks any one of these languages besides Spanish and 0.8% speaks only one of these Amerindian languages. Hence you are hard pressed to find qualified teachers abroad.

  2. Mexican isnt a language, it is a country. Spanish is the official language of Mexico so you would want to learn Spanish.
    I hope this helped.

    Spanish control of Mexico led to the dominance of Spanish, the official language. As many as 100 Native American languages are still spoken in Mexico, but no single alternative language prevails. Eighty percent of those Mexicans who speak an indigenous language also speak Spanish.

    The most important of the Native American languages is Nahuatl. It is the primary language of more than a million Mexicans and is spoken by nearly one-fourth of all Native Americans in the country. This is followed by Maya, used by 14 percent of Native Americans, and Mixteco and Zapoteco, each spoken by about seven percent of Native Americans. No other indigenous language is spoken by more than five percent of Mexico’s Native Americans.
