Mexican Spanish is a set of varieties of the Spanish language as spoken in Mexico and in some parts of Canada and the United States. Mexico’s current population is approximately 130 million; although today the vast majority of the Mexican population speaks Spanish, the original languages of the country are Amerindian, or indigenous. The origin of many of these indigenous languages is in Meso-American, with linguistic data dating back to around five thousand years ago. Prior to 2,000 BC, Meso-America was in the Archaic period that produced three major language families: Mayan, Mixe-Zoquean, and Oto-Manguean.

The most widely spoken indigenous language of Mexico is Nahuatl. This language belongs to the Uto-Aztecan family that researchers believe originated in the south-western region of the US. Around 500 AD, speakers of the language migrated to Central Mexico. Nearly one hundred years later, Nahuatl became the most powerful language of the region, used by the Aztec Empire. With the arrival of the Spanish colonizers, Nahuatl gradually lost its position as the dominant language. Today, 1,376,026 continue to speak the language, 14.9 per cent of them are monolingual (speaking only one language).

Spanish was brought to Mexico in the sixteenth century. As in all other Spanish-speaking countries (including Spain), different accents and varieties of the language exist in different parts of the country, for both historical and sociological reasons.
