One way to truly immerse yourself in Oaxaca is to speak the language of the locals.

The primary language is Spanish and indigenous languages abound.

Here is the current working draft of how to greet people in local indigenous and world languages. Suggestions and corrections are always welcome. Editors are welcome to make changes to this page.

We also have a brand new Google doc open to edits
