This research presents the results of a study on language attitudes of Mexican university students.
This work was carried out through the design and implementation of a sociolinguistic
questionnaire, which was applied to a sample of students from the Autonomous University
of Chapingo (UACh), located in the city of Texcoco de Mora in the state of Mexico. This is an
interesting institution due to its agricultural orientation, what makes students relevant informants owing to their lack of specific sociolinguistic training, and because of the great ethnic
diversity of the abovementioned university.
The main objective of this work is to explore Mexican students’ language attitudes
towards the indigenous language speakers, including the attitudes of the students that identify
themselves as indigenous regarding their endogroup. We also want to verify if there are
significant differences according to the ethnic category of the informant.
