    Re: Languages in Mexico

    Spanish predominates in all major cities. You will find large numbers of speakers of native languages in more rural areas. The two languages with the largest numbers of speakers are Nahuatl and Yucatec Maya. The states of Guerrero and Hidalgo have the largest number of Native American language-speakers who do not speak Spanish. Most of the other states have populations that are either monolingual Spanish-speaking or are bilingual in Spanish and one Native language.

    Spanish is the official language in mexico, but there other languages that are widely spoken in that country. In the north of mexico there is a group of people called the ''tarahumara'' people, they are a native american ethnic group from Mexico and they speak a language named Tarahumara. The maya people can be found in the south of the country, very close to the border with Guatemala and Belize, but there are very few of them in Mexico. Most of them live in Guatemala. Many other languages are spoken in Mexico: zapotec, mixtec, nahualt, huichol, etc.

    On a related note, since my Spanish is a little rusty, in touristic areas I should be completely fine with English, right?

    Interesting to find out that there are other languages spoken in Mexico besides Spanish. I wonder how frequent those other languages are spoken in comparison to Spanish?

    Some of the most widely spoken languages in Mexico, aside from Spanish, are Nahuatl, which has almost 1.4 million speakers, Yucatec Maya, spoken by over three quarters of a million people, and Mixtec, whose speakers amount to about half a million.

    I have been to Mexico but have never tried this place yet in my life. But i will surely like to say that sounds so cool and worth trying. So now surely i will have a great time there while my tour and will do this for sure after my local tours from Washington DC. I will take my camera with me and surely this is gonna be a great time. Is not it buddies?
