In Yaxunah, language remains an influential sector in conserving traditional Maya heritage. Here, there are two goals of language acquisition: community members learning english and Mayan composition. While everyone in Yaxunah speaks Maya fluently, many community members aspire to read and write in their native language.
For the purpose of expanding their educational and career opportunities, the members of Yaxunah wish to learn and develop their English skills. At the CCC, there are opportunities to teach English classes while staying in our village. Contact Grace or Elias for more information.
