Learning Tamil

Writing about web page

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?
