LISTO In the News
Here’s a KOAT 7 Video About the Program!

Why Oaxaca?
LISTO for teachers is based in and around Ciudad de Oaxaca, México, in a state with over 500 municipalities and 40 distinct languages in the southern part of Mexico, home to the spicy chocolate mole sauce, dances such as the Guelaguetza, traditional handmade clothes, black pottery and hand-woven rugs.  The people of Oaxaca are proud of their traditions, and still preserve them after 500 years of colonization and modernity.  Near the city of Oaxaca are the ancient ruins of Monte Alban, coffee, banana and agave plantations, and numerous villages known for crafts such as woodworking or pottery.
