Did you know that Nahuatl was the language of the Aztec Empire and is still spoken by 1.5 million people today in modern-day Veracruz, Hidalgo, San Luis Potosí, Guerrero, Tlaxcala and Puebla?
Here’s your chance to learn to SPEAK Nahuatl through conversations, culture and music! The course will focus on the modern Huastecan variety of Nahuatl spoken in Chicontepec, Veracruz (as opposed to the classical variety), so you will learn to speak the language!
We will review basic greetings, learn how to introduce ourselves, say where we’re from, our age, the numbers 1-10, and learn about some mouth-watering dishes from La Huasteca.
We will also hear a song by the one and only gran trovador solitario in Nahuatl, Crispin Martinez
The Stanford Center for Latin American Studies and the Indigenous Languages and Cultures of Latin America working group would like to invite you to our FREE weekly Modern Nahuatl Classes!
Ever wondered where the words chocolate, guacamole, metate, petate, came from? Or why we call somebody with the same name our “tocayo” in Mexican Spanish?
