Mexica Ohui

  • Review


    One of the most complete courses around. Mexica Ohui is pretty much a (free!) textbook in website form, and as such, it features exercises after each lesson, which is a pretty nice change if you’d like to test your knowledge.

  • Review


    David K. Jordan’s compilation of Classical Nahuatl notes. If you’re only starting out or merely interested in Nahuatl as a language and the Mexica as a former empire, this website is must, as it includes pretty much all the basics you need to know of Nahuatl grammar, phonology and vocabulary. It even features some downloadables (do keep in mind that they are essentially another man’s study notes, so they may be really helpful or not at all, depending on what kind of student you are).

  • Review


    The Pueblos Originarios website isn’t only devoted to Nahuatl language and culture, but also to that of many other aboriginal people’s. It’s Nahuatl portion features a small dictionary. It’s decent, but has mostly earned a spot in this list through its comprehensive coverage of old Mexican culture.

En sintonía con el español

  • Review


    The Centro Virtual Cervantes website is an amazingly useful resource in itself, with materials for every level, online courses, literature articles, and more, but it’s so big it’s easy to get lost in, which is why I’d rather focus on “En sintonía con el español”. This site (obviously belonging to the Centro Cervantes network) is home to a podcast and blog which are both updated frequently, with interesting articles and videos on general interest, cultural and grammar-related topics.

    Its contents are more beneficial to students entering intermediate Spanish, but in any case it’s a good study resource.
