About Language immersion courses in Mexico

Language immersion courses are hugely popular in many parts of the world. From the 1960s, these holistic language courses were introduced and encouraged in the USA and Canada. However, now these all round courses are commonplace in most developing nations looking to strengthen their education system. For international students settling in foreign locales, a thorough, informative course in native languages is essential for survival in the long run. As most nations have their own official lingua franca, these comprehensive language schools offer comprehensive courses for overseas students learning the national languages. Mexico also is not an exception in this regard. Some of the finest Spanish language schools are situated in Mexico, and they are popular among travelling students and skilled professionals alike. But what makes the Mexican experience unique is the fact that there is no official language in Mexico!
 
The constitution of Mexico does not include a provision for one or multiple official or national languages like most other nations. However, what Mexico has, is a government that has over the years encouraged the development of academic courses and educational institutes based on the Spanish language. Spanish is the language used for all official purposes here. In fact statistically, this country has the largest number of Spanish speakers in the world- much more than even Spain! A third of all Spanish speakers in the world come from this North American nation. So learning Spanish through the language immersion courses is a must for foreign students.
 
Besides Spanish, Mexico is also home to some of the most vivid but lesser known languages in the world. A lot of research has been carried out on these languages; and a large number of international linguists and language researchers flock to Mexico to get a firsthand experience of its diversity. But then, to start with, most of them enroll in the Spanish studies as a first step towards achieving their goals.
 
Experts claim that over 5 percent of the population of the country uses indigenous languages and dialects. Remarkably more than one percent of the entire population speaks in only one indigenous language (or are mono-language speakers, technically). Out of the total number of indigenous speakers, quite a lot of people use the language called ‘Nahuatl’. Also on the list of the highly used indigenous languages is ‘Yukatek Maya’. Another name in the language list of Mexico is ‘Zapotec’. Most people might not have heard of these indigenous languages, but if students are eager to come to this country, they must have a brief understanding of them. It might not be humanly possible to learn up all of them, but to become a part of the broader Mexican society it is necessary to appreciate the plurality prevalent in the country. The first criterion is of course is to start leaning Spanish, by enrolling oneself in the Spanish study courses.
 
The government of Mexico recognizes as many as 68 groups with separate or distinct languages (at least spoken languages). Also, officially there are 364 types of dialects, which are rich in their own local histories, and go hand in hand with the multilingual culture of Mexico. There are also the popular German and Venetian languages that are spoken in some parts of this big country. For international students trying to make a living here, or attempting to educate themselves, learning Spanish is the only way to truly become a part of this rich fabric called Mexico!
