Let's Learn Mixteco

This Website contains several activities to learn Tù’un na Ñuu Sá Mátxíí Ntxè’è, the Mixtec variety spoken in San Martín Duraznos (Oaxaca, Mexico). In the activities tab on the menu you will find the materials organized around topics: animals, food, colors, etc. First, you will hear the words with their meaning and then you will have games to play and recognize the words you have just learned. As you go through each collection, games will become more challenging. You will start with simple words and slowly you will build up to playing with combinations of words and sentences. Have fun! 

With these activities, our goal is to support Mixtec language maintenance among the Mixtec diaspora in the US. Our team is made of community members, linguists and educators working together to incorporate and transform materials collected as part of ongoing documentation efforts to describe Mixtec varieties in the California diaspora.
