Writing about web page http://www.talktamil.4t.com/
I'm attempting to learn some Tamil in preparation for India. It's a great language, but totally different to anything I know. I'm also learning more French with Michel Thomas. He's amazing. He tells me right at the start that I already know about 70% of the French language. If only he did a Tamil course….
I have 5 months!!
Here are some words and phrases I've managed to learn so far:
Vanakkam – hello
Nundri – thank you
Nalla – good
En peyar Helen – my name is Helen
Aarma – yes
Illai – no
Vaanga – welcome
Epadi Irukienga? – how are you?
