Mexican Programmers Create App to Learn Mixtec Language

MEXICO CITY – A team of Mexican programmers have introduced the “Let’s Learn Mixtec” app to enable people to learn the Ñuu Davi language, a Mixtec dialect spoken by indigenous peoples in southern Mexico.

The app makes learning a language fun, according to the developers.

The program enables users to navigate among lessons in which they learn to exchange greetings, write and count, as well as pick up with tidbits about community life, flora and fauna and the geographic distribution of the Mixtec peoples.

The “Vamos a aprender mixteco” (“Let’s Learn Mixtec”) app is based on the book of the same title by Donato Garcia, a native speaker of Ñuu Davi.

Encouraging people to learn Mixtec, Garcia said, is an expression of his desire “to awaken the interest of my Ñuu Davi brothers and sisters to join in the revitalization of the elements of our culture.”

The La Mixteca region, including parts of the states of Oaxaca, Puebla and Guerrero, is home some 500,000 Mixtec speakers, according to estimates from the National Institute of Indigenous Languages.
