Let us be true ISC Indian friends on this friendship day with new learning.Today being the friendship day, I would like to see all the ISC friends joining and writing in this thread and in my following threads . Learning a language will help us to remain together. Therefore, a good idea struck in my mind to keep us together through our writing and learning.
We have members from different states of our country speaking different languages. Why not we try and learn very simple words of the Indian languages that would help us to feel a true Indian. We have members from Tamilnadu(Tamil), Kerala (Malayalam), AP(Telugu), Karnataka(Kannada), Maharashtra(Marati), Rajasthan(Rajasthani), UP(Hindi), West Bengal(Bengali), Odissa(Odissi)and Punjab (Punjab). I have quoted almost ten good languages.
I propose to raise this thread once in a week preferably on Sunday with a title " Let us learn few Indian languages - Day 1. Day 2. Day 3 etc.
Every thread will have very simple more commonly used English words that are used in our day to day conversation. Each state member should translate it and write the equivalent of the English word/phrase/sentence in their regional language using English alphabets.
What is your name? My name is Sun (English)
A Tamil member should respond as below:
What is your name? My name is Sun . (In Tamil) Vun Peyar Enna? En Peyar Sun
A Hindi member would respond as below:
What is your name? My name is Sun . (In Hindi) Aapka Naam Kyaa Hai? Mera Naam Sun Hai.
If there are too many members from a particular state, members should avoid responding if they find a member has already responded correctly. Others may respond with a change in the members response, if necessary.
Okay members, Why delay? Let us start our language learning today itself. Watch for my first thread "Let us learn few Indian languages - Day 1"
@ Members can have their own diary to record the words/phrases/sentences which will be easy for reference and understanding.
This main thread should be used only to post your views, opinion and comments about language learning. Please do not post anything irrelevant in the language learning threads.
