Pronunciation: Video 2

Uriel, Faviola’s 7-year-old brother from Oapan, Guerrero, Mexico, introduces himself in Náhuatl, Spanish and English.

The script of what Uriel says goes as follows:-
‘Nextili
’My name is Uriel
’Me llamo Uriel
’Notoca Uriel’

‘Nextili’ means ‘Hello’, so, when Uriel says
Nextili - notoca Uriel
he’s saying ‘Hello, my name is Uriel’.
Now you should be able to say ‘Hello, my name is ____’ in Náhuatl! (Remember, the ‘x’ is pronounced ‘sh’)
