Why Learn Spanish from Mexico?
Over 120 million people speak Mexican Spanish
By itself, Mexican Spanish ranks in the top 10 most widely spoken languages on earth!
There are more than 30 million Mexican Spanish speakers in the U.S.
Mexican Spanish is by far the most common form of Spanish in the U.S.
International businesses widely consider Mexican Spanish as the standard.
Large companies often use Mexican Spanish when doing business in Hispanic countries.
As a student, it is important to learn the kind of Spanish that people actually use. That is to say, many textbooks will teach a generic version of Spanish that has been homogenized for simplicity. However, every country has a very nuanced dialect all its own. In Mexico for instance, the government recognizes 350 different dialects in their country. But don’t get scared by those figures. Firstly, remember it’s all about learning to communicate. Secondly, many of those dialects belong to the indigenous people of Mexico. Meaning, there isn’t even a standard kind of Mexican Spanish.
