The Language in Mexico

The official language of Mexico is Spanish, and it's spoken by the majority of the population. The vocabulary, pronunciation, and slang of Mexican Spanish vary from region to region. Native languages such as Nahuatl, Maya, Mixtec, and Zapotec are just a few of the more than 60 that are spoken across Mexico.

Even though Spanish is the most common language in Mexico, it's not unusual to meet people who speak both Spanish and English, especially in tourist areas. English is the foreign language that people in Mexico speak the most, and many people in tourist areas can communicate in basic English.


A small number of Mexicans also speak other languages, such as German, French, and Italian, in addition to Spanish and the languages of the people who live there. Most of the time, these are people who have moved from other countries or who have a background in a foreign language.

Before you go to Mexico, it's always a good idea to learn a few simple Spanish phrases, especially if you plan to go outside of tourist areas. It will make communication easier and show respect for the culture and people of the area.
